12 March 2014

The elected representatives who won seats in Burma’s 1990 election, the results of which were ignored by the ruling military junta, are set to hold a meeting for the first time, the Myanma Freedom Daily reports. Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy won a landslide in the elections, in which total of 130 parties took part. Organizer Sein Myint told the newspaper that the would-be lawmakers would meet at Rangoon’s Roal Rose Hall on March 22 and will “discuss the 2008 constitution drafted by the army without allowing us, lawmakers, who have a mandate to draft the constitution to participate.”
