Aung San Suu Kyi vows good governance, effective administration

Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi pledged to deliver good governance if her party wins the general elections in November in an address to supporters from her home constituency at a campaign rally Monday, according to a RFA report on 21 September.

She also told the crowd in the rural hamlet of Kawhmu south of the commercial capital Yangon to cast votes bravely in the elections on 8 November which her National League for Democracy (NLD) is largely expected to win over the ruling, military-backed Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP).

A new government under the NLD would revamp the existing ineffective administrative system so that road repair work, for instance, would be done properly to withstand damage every time it rains, she said.

Khin Maung Soe, a member of Aung San Suu Kyi’s election campaign, told RFA’s Myanmar Service that the politician’s major message has been for people to vote for the NLD without fear, even though they have been told not to and to check voters’ lists to ensure their names appear on them.
