Media Advisory: A Launch of the Report, ‘Election for Ethnic Equality? A Snapshot of Ethnic Perspectives on the 2015Elections’

By Burma Partnership  •  October 5, 2015

On 9 October 2015, Burma Partnership will launch a report titled Elections for Ethnic Equality? A Snapshot of Ethnic Perspectives on the 2015 Elections at the Royal Rose in Rangoon, Burma.

Written by Burma Partnership’s Progressive Voice Policy Research Project, the 69 page report gives a snapshot of ethnic communities’ and ethnic political parties’ views on the 2015 elections. The report also highlights fundamental issues for ethnic people such as the need for peace, ethnic equality, self-determination and a federal system of governance. Despite the hopes that the 2015 elections will lead to further democracy in the country, the institutional structures of governance that centralize power, as well as the overarching power and influence of the Burma Army as stipulated by the 2008 Constitution, will continue to undermine the rights of ethnic communities.

As the country steadily approaches the much-anticipated 2015 elections, and with the peace process ongoing, the report seeks to analyze whether the 2015 elections will create the political landscape for the ethnic communities to truly achieve their rights, aspirations and goals that ethnic political parties and ethnic armed organizations are striving for.

What: Launch of Elections for Ethnic Equality? A Snapshot of Ethnic Perspectives on the 2015 Elections
 Where: Royal Rose, Shwegondaing Rd, Rangoon, Burma
 When: 9 October, 2015, 14:00-16:00 ( Rangoon Time)

The launch will be conducted in Burmese language, although English language copies of the report and press release will be provided at the launch. For non-Burmese language speakers, it is advisable to bring an interpreter.
