The European Union Election Observation Mission will hand over its assets and equipment including office furniture, laptops, and medical kits to selected local non-governmental organizations that work to consolidate democracy and promote human rights in Myanmar.

The Yangon office is due to wind up its election work on December 8.

Despite some flaws in the process, Myanmar’s election has generally been recognised as free and fair. The November 8 poll saw a landslide victory for Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy. The current government of President Thein Sein is currently preparing to hand over power, a process that is set to finish in February-March 2016.
