Police presence raises in Yangon Region while elections get close in Myanmar.

Yangon (Rangoon) has been capital of Myanmar (Burna). It is the “largest city” of the Country, “with a population of over five million” people (Wikipedia).

Towards “next Sunday’s elections”, following a decision of the authorities, “Yangon Region” would be on “alert” and thousands of policemen would “have been mobilised” (EFE).

According to what has been declared by the “head of the police, Thein Lwin” to the “newspaper Global New Light of Myanmar”,  around “3,000” police officers (namely “half of the policemen in the region”) will be on “alert until November 14”. That is to say “six days after” the vote (ibidem).

Is it about security measures or an explicit way to prepare a context incompatible with fair elections?
