Obama: Myanmar election was neither free nor fair

JAKARTA (Reuters) - President Barack Obama said on Tuesday that Myanmar’s election, won by the country’s biggest military-backed party, was neither free nor fair.

Obama was speaking alongside Indonesia’s president at the start of a 20-hour visit to the country.

On Monday, Obama said Myanmar’s military had stolen Sunday’s election, the first for 20 years in the Southeast Asian country.
