Felt like since how much of what was already passing for normal life i guess given the pandemic but how much is the feel of the city changed since the coup d'etat. Everyday's a little bit different. So the first day i went out to the markets just alexi what i could over here talk to people because you know people were getting online and a first a couple hours. Not everyone knew. The markets were busier than normal. There were more men. The normal people seem like they were ignoring the one person per household rule a lot more than they were.

We're going to redirect our focus for a few minutes and talk about another election. The one happening in the Southeast Asian nation of Myanmar this weekend. It's the second election since the military transferred absolute power in 2011 Michael Sullivan reports from Bangkok. Unlike the US election, this one really isn't in doubt. A second term for Aung Sung Soo Ji's National League for Democracy. It's almost a foregone conclusion that the day will get back in for a variety of reasons, most of which is on Sansa cheese undiminished domestic popularity. David Matheson is an independent political analyst based in Myanmar's largest city and gone Phil Robertson is deputy Asia director for Human Rights Watch science coochie in the National League for Democracy government were elected in a landslide 2015, including with ethnic votes, because it was expected that they would represent everybody But increasingly, what we're seeing is she is primarily interested just in the ethnic Berman's comprise 65% of the voters, the majority of whom were okay with Myanmar's military, launching its brutal campaign against the Muslim minority Rohingya in 2017. Which led roughly 750,000 Rohingya to flee to neighboring Bangladesh. It also led to charges of genocide against Myanmar at a U. N tribunal at The Hague last year. Aung San Souci went to The Hague toe personally lead Myanmar's defense. She stood up for nation race and religion, not for the army, but for nation race and religion. That's Mary Callahan, another Yangon based analyst and associate professor of international studies at the University of Washington. She notes. Discrimination against the Rohingya continues in this election, with a vast majority barred from voting. Richard Horsey wrote the latest international crisis group report on this election. They weren't allowed to vote in the last election in 2015, either, so that group has been disenfranchised, and that's part of the systematic denial of citizenship. And they're not the only ones disenfranchised. Last month, the election Commission canceled voting in several conflict areas home toe, large minority populations, and if minority parties in general failed to win enough seats, says Mary Callahan. It's not clear what happens next. Maybe it means for some they give up on it all and just decide armed resistance is the only answer. Especially for young people who will wonder why they've been bothering with a system that really doesn't serve them at all. A system where Myanmar's mainly Buddhist Berman military still wields enormous power. Whoever wins the ballot, the military will be there. Richard Horsey says. That's because the military drafted constitution. Sets aside 25% of the seats in Parliament for the military plus control of three security ministries. So this is some form of military civilian cohabitation, regardless of election results. And then there's the covert pandemic that hit Myanmar late but hard in September. Straining a rudimentary health care system and forcing widespread lockdowns, including in the commercial capital, Yangon, do it down, But on songs, which he insists the elections proceed, telling people in a nationally televised address that the government would do its best to ensure their safety of polling places, and for all its shortcomings, says Richard Horsy, this election still matters.
