VOTING began in Meiktila Township, Mandalay Region, at 6am for Myanmar’s general election, with witnesses saying the voting process was carried out smoothly. A number of voters were visibly jubilant about being able to cast their votes, and queues started forming well before the official opening time.
A young voter at Polling Booth 1 in Myoma Ward said the voting process went unhindered and added that he wished Myanmar’s political candidates well.
Township election commission chairman U Than Win, township election security management committee chairman and township administrator U Myo Hline, Mandalay Region deputy police commander Police Col Thet Naing, Meiktila District deputy commissioner U Tint Wai Thon, district police chief Police Lt-Col Saw Nay Lin, township police force commander Police Major Maung Shwe and special police forces made regular inspections of the township to ensure the atmosphere remained calm and that voters were able to freely cast their votes.—Chan Thar
