The date fixed for the elections in Burma was 21st November, and it is expected that the results, will be known by 15th December. I have not yet received figures of the actual number of persons enrolled as electors.

Was there practised at these elections any non-co-operation?

There is no reason to suppose that the elections are not being held under normal conditions.
