Restrictions mar Myanmar election

Candidates campaigning under severe restrictions ahead of Sunday's vote.

    Myanmar is preparing to hold its first election in 20 years on Sunday.

    Al Jazeera's correspondent, who cannot be named due to Myanmar's severe reporting restrictions, has this exclusive report from Yangon.
