Myanmar split over poll boycott

Questions are being raised as to whether NLD boycott of upcoming polls is the right move.

    Myanmar has announced it will hold elections on November 7, but the country's leading opposition figure, Aung San Suu Kyi will not take part in the vote.

    Her party, the National League for Democracy (NLD), has refused to register and disbanded, citing unjust election rules.

    But some are questioning whether an election boycott is the right move.

    More from Al Jazeera's correspondent, who will not be named because of Myanmar's reporting restrictions.
