ANFREL wishes to congratulate the people of Myanmar, the Union Election Commission, and the hundreds of thousands of polling staff who made this electoral process a success despite difficult conditions.

This interim report contains the IEOM’s preliminary assessment of all election-related activities up to Election Day (8 November 2020).
