The nationwide election of ward and village tract administrators, which took place earlier this year in 2018, was the first nationwide election under the National League for Democracy-led government since amendments to the Ward or Village Tract Administration Law were passed in 2016. While improvements have been made to the Law, much more is needed to further develop democracy, active citizenship and participatory local governance under an institutional structure and process that allows all citizens to exercise their basic democratic rights.
