Rushanara Ali – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Rushanara Ali on 2015-10-14.

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what discussions his Department has had with the government of Burma on the possible postponement of elections in that country.

None. Burma’s Union Election Commission consulted the main political parties on 13 October over the possibility of a postponement to the 8 November general election because of flooding, but decided against such a postponement shortly thereafter.
