Although Myanmar’s Union Electoral Commisison (UEC) welcomed both domestic and international electoral observation missions to observe the November 2015 elections, and established codes of conduct for each category of observation missions, there is no authorization in the law for electoral observation in Myanmar.

This Fact Sheet is part of a series that provides comparative examples on issues relevant to the reform of Myanmar’s electoral legal framework. It summarizes the current state of the law in Myanmar and provides examples of laws establishing electoral observation in other countries.
