Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - WORLD -

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.”
