Despite 93 parties running in the by-elections, Aung San Suu Kyi’s party, the NLD, and the main opposition, the USDP, are the most popular. It is expected that Suu Kyi’s team will be in a better position with the support of the army.

This year 3 crore 80 lakh people will exercise their right to vote. But polling has been canceled in Rakhine-Shan-Kachin-Mann and Bago areas. As a result, 1.5 million people are being deprived of the right to vote. The most affected are the Rohingya minority in Rakhine.
