"Possible election fraud!" And, "Millions of errors on the voter lists!" With these accusations after the parliamentary elections of November 8, 2020, the military have now justified their coup. They claim that the same names appeared several times on the lists. They also claim that the numbers of voters’ identity cards were repeated. However, the army provided no evidence for this claim. The election commission rejected the allegations.
