Low voter turnout for Rangoon municipal elections

Party observers are reporting a very low voter turnout for municipal elections at Rangoon polling stations on Saturday. Naw Hla Hla Soe, a candidate in northern Rangoon, said that at one polling station she monitored, less than 50 of the 500 eligible voters cast ballots. In addition, protests and arguments broke out at polling stations in several townships when voters discovered they were not registered.

Results expected on Monday. Read www.dvb.no for more.
