Myanmar Junta to Dissolve National League for Democracy (Me: Junta takes page from Trump and levies trumped up lies about election)

The military regime-appointed election body said on Friday that it would dissolve the National League for Democracy (NLD) for allegedly committing voter fraud, and take action against those who it says “rigged” the November vote, calling them “traitors”. The military justified its February coup by alleging massive voter fraud in November’s general election, which brought a landslide victory to the NLD. However, the Asian Network for Free Elections said the outcome of the vote was “by and large, representative of the will of the people of Myanmar.”
