What are your impressions about Myanmar’s upcoming general election in November?

Voters are enthusiastic to give the NLD another opportunity to improve economic and social conditions.

What do you think are the main differences between the November election and the previous ones back to 1990?

First, voters are more knowledgeable than before. They will pick politicians they think can do the job. Second, under the pandemic, voters do not want to risk having a new government without any proven record. At least, with the current government, voters know and understand what … the government policy [has been] and what will come next.
