The ruling military junta in Burma blatantly grabbed votes for its own party, the Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP), by abusing its authority through acts of voter fraud during yesterday’s election, eyewitnesses said.
“The Chief of quarter administration stood in front of the polling station and told all voters ‘you all should vote for the USDP’s Zahkung Ting Ying. We see and know who you are voting for, so be careful’. So, all the people voted for Ting Ying,” said a local source in Pangwa, the headquarters of the former armed group, the New Democratic Army-Kachin (NDA-K).
