The 2018 Election Security Management Central Committee coordination meeting 1/2018 was held at the meeting hall of the Ministry of Home Affairs in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday morning.

For the by-election, security will be conducted by designating four security periods – pre-election period security, election campaign period security, by-election period security and post-by-election period security. Possibilities that could affect security need to be thought out to setup security arrangements and rehearsals and practices are to be conducted.
