Yesterday, President U Win Myint and wife Daw Cho Cho cast their ballots in Tamwe Township Constituency where he secured a lower house parliamentary seat in the 2015 Election.

By-election was held for 13 vacant constituencies nationwide on November 3—four vacant seats for lower house parliament, one for Upper House parliament and eight for Region and State parliaments.

Four vacant constituencies for lower house parliament are: Kanpetlet, Lechar, Tamwe and Myingyan constituencies. One vacant constituency for upper house parliament is Myitkyina constituency-2.

The ruling NLD formed the government after winning a landslide victory in the 2015 Election. The NLD secured nine (47 per cent) of 19 vacant seats in the by-election in 2017.

The voter turnout rate was low significantly. The police have filed a case against the woman who cast her vote on behalf of her friend, at No.2 polling booth in Zayatkwin village in Thabeikkyin Township Constituency-1. In addition, at least 20 eligible voters were not included in the voter list in Minbu Township.
