缅民主派候选人抱怨选举注册费和限制 Burma Democracy Candidates Complain of High Fees, Restrictions

30 August, 2010

参加缅甸即将举行选举的政党表示,由于限制性的选举法和高额注册费,他们没有能够派出像他们所希望的那样多的候选人参选。
 
反对派党派说,由于缺少资金,他们被迫减少参选人数,这使得他们无法有效的挑战得到军政府支持的联邦巩固与发展党。该党给所有1162个席位都提出了自己的候选人。
 
批评人士说,这次选举是一场骗局,而且军政府没有显示放弃控制的迹象。注册候选人的体系是批评人士提到的有利于军政府的很多规定之一。

Political parties taking part in Burma's upcoming elections say they have not been able to enter as many candidates as they want because of restrictive election laws and high registration fees.
 
Opposition parties say because of a lack of funds, they have been forced to scale back the number of contenders, making it impossible to effectively challenge the military-backed Union Solidarity and Development Party, which is fielding a candidate for all 1,162 seats.
 
Critics say the election is a sham and that the military shows little sign of giving up control. The system of registering candidates is one of the many rules critics point to as weighted in the military's favor.
