Union Election Commission and the Facebook Team discussed preparations for relaunching the commission’s social media page ahead of 2020 General Election.
U Hla Thein, the Chairman of Commission, made an opening remark on the meeting under the topic ‘Connecting with Communities’.
He said the UEC is using its website, state-owned television and newspapers to release news about the commission, and it is also publishing update news on the upcoming elections to prevent false and fake news.
The commission launched UEC Facebook Page in December 2014 and suspended it in November 2017.
As the number of first time youth voters is expected to reach 4 million in 2020 General Election, the commission will relaunch its Facebook page to conduct civic education, voter education and speedy flows of information to the people. It will also form social media supervising committee and monitoring committee for its page.
Director of Public Policy in Southeast Asia from Facebook Team Mr Ratael Frankel extended greetings and the attendees discussed the use of Facebook for electoral purpose and community standards. —MNA (Translated by Aung Khin)
