2020 Myanmar General Elections Final Observation Mission Report

The 2020 Myanmar General Election encountered several challenges including restrictions amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the observed shortcomings, the outcome of the elections were deemed to reflect the true will of the electorate.
