Myanmar pledges to abide by poll
YANGON: Both Myanmar’s army and the government would accept the outcome of tomorrow’s historic election, Myanmar president Thein Sein said yesterday, adding he would work with opposition parties to ensure a stable transition.
He said a successful election was the key step to continue the reforms he ushered in after coming to power as the head of a semi-civilian government in 2011.
“I’d like to say again that the government and the military will respect and accept the results. I will accept the new government formed based on the election result.”
