Fate of NLD and other political parties will depend on investigations: SAC spokesperson
All political parties, including the National League for Democracy(NLD), will be investigated into and follow up actions will be taken depending on how many laws were broken by them, according to the State Administration Council (SAC) information team member and spokesperson Major Kaung Htet San.
On May 7, the SAC held a press conference over video conferencing during which a reporter had asked regarding the Union Election Comission's (UEC) current investigations regarding the NLD.
"Since the SAC government took over, the UEC was reformed and investigations were launched into voter lists. It had progressed considerably. After the investigations are done, depending on findings regarding voter fraud and so on will decide the future of the NLD and all other parties, actions will be taken according to the law," said the Major.
The SAC and the reformed UEC under the military had been issuing statements of their findings regarding voter fraud or malpractice regarding the 2020 General Election.
"In regards to the NLD, there are laws that the political parties are allowed to exist from those in the constitution to the political party registeration law. In Section 407(b), there are clauses that say that a political party is not allowed to communicate, directly or indirectly, with insurgents, terrorists or those that were declared to be an illegal organisation," said Kaung Htet San.
NLD's chair Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, vice-chair U Win Myint and other top-level NLD leaders are still being detained and sued.
