The electoral commission in Myanmarwho was appointed by the country’s ruling junta, announced today that the National League for Democracy (LND), her party Aung San Suu Kyiwill be disbanded, state television reported.

The LND, which won widely in the 2015 and 2020 parliamentary elections, will see “its charter as a political party automatically cancelled” from tomorrow, Wednesday, if it fails to meet the conditions for its re-registration, according to MRTV, the television and Radio Myanmar.

Myanmar has descended into chaos after the military overthrew the elected government of Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi in February 2021 on disputed allegations of electoral fraud.

The ruling military has since promised to hold a national referendum. But the military, which originally intended to hold elections before August, cited security and logistical reasons for postponing them, in a country wracked by a violent civil conflict that is partly out of their control.

According to a local organization, more than 3,100 people have lost their lives in the context of the military crackdown on dissidents after the coup.

More than a million people have been displaced by the fighting, according to the UN.

In December, the junta sentenced the former head of government to 33 years in prison in a river trial that human rights organizations condemned as a sham trial.
