Election not recognised


Yangon: Myanmar's militaryba­cked opposition party said yesterday it would not recognise an election held earlier this week and urged authoritie­s to hold another vote.

The Union Solidarity and Developmen­t Party (USDP) said at a news conference the vote was conducted unfairly and the party had asked the election commission for a rerun.

The ruling National League for Democracy (NLD), led by Aung San Suu Kyi, has establishe­d a clear lead in early results and the party has claimed victory overall, citing its own unofficial tally. — Reuters
