November 11, 2015

General elections for the Myanmar Parliament and Region and State Parliaments were held on November 8, 2015. The elections took place within the framework of the 2008 Constitution and were open to international observers. As a friendly democratic neighbour, we had deputed a 3 member team of election observers from the Election Commission of India.

The Government and people of India welcome this significant step towards democracy in a close neighbour with whom we have long historic links. We congratulate the people of Myanmar for the orderly conduct of voting and the peaceful and exemplary conduct of the electorate. We trust that the electoral outcome would be respected by all parties.
