A briefing by Burmese Rohingya Organisation UK.

The briefing paper provides analysis of the election from the perspective of the Rohingya and information on Rohingya political parties and candidates who have been banned from participating. When the people of Burma go to the polling stations on November 8th, for the first time since independence the majority of Rohingya will not be allowed to vote. In another first, as all Rohingya candidates for the national parliament were rejected by the Union Election Commission (UEC), there will be no Rohingya MPs in Parliament.

The briefing paper examines the prospects for the Rohingya after the elections under an NLD or USDP government. It concludes that whoever wins, the Rohingya lose, with no prospect in sight for significant improvement for our situation after the election.
