What We Do

The three sections of our work, Election Observation, Capacity Building and Campaign & Advocacy are different parts of ANFREL’s holistic approach to the promotion of democratic institutions. These divisions, while different, support one another.

ANFREL International Election Observation Mission to the 2020 Myanmar General Elections Interim Report

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. We further congratulate all election stakeholders, and in particular civil society organisations and the international community, for contributing to a vibrant election environment and conducting much-needed education, advocacy, and observation activities.

This interim report contains the IEOM’s preliminary assessment of all election-related activities up to Election Day (8 November 2020). ANFREL will issue a comprehensive Mission Report within two months after the elections, which will expand on the information contained in this interim report and include an assessment of the announcement of results, the post-election period, electoral dispute resolution, as well as a full set of recommendations to improve future electoral processes in Myanmar.
