Suu Kyi says `questions` about fairness in Myanmar vote: BBC
Bangkok: Freed Myanmar opposition leader
Aung San Suu Kyi said there were "many many questions" about
the fairness of the army-ruled country`s recent elections, in
an interview with the BBC on Sunday.
Suu Kyi, who earlier addressed thousands of supporters
at the Yangon offices of her now-disbanded National League for
Democracy (NLD) party, said she also believed it was the right
decision to boycott the controversial poll.
"From what I have heard there are many many questions
about the fairness of the election and there are many many
allegations of vote rigging and so on," she said in the
interview. She said an NLD committee investigate all the
complaints and would produce a report on the matter.
Myanmar`s November 7 poll was widely condemned as a
sham aimed at concealing military rule behind a civilian
facade. The junta`s political proxy has claimed an
overwhelming victory in the election amid opposition
complaints of cheating and voter intimidation.
