On the Campaign Trail

8 October 2015

Official campaigning for Burma’s general election kicked off on Sept. 8. While the opening weeks of the contest saw most parties keeping a low profile, candidates from the country’s two biggest parties, the ruling USDP and opposition NLD, made their presences felt, with door-to-door campaigning, parades and rallies aimed at courting voters ahead of the historic Nov. 8 vote.
