Title

Mi Su Su's Oral History

Synopsis

• Female aged 31
• Ethnic Mon Buddhist
• Teacher and polling staff worker
• Concerned about people travelling before election, coming back to the village without staying at local quarantine centers.
• Felt she was treated differently as a teacher because people thought she was taking a salary without any tasks and efforts for it during Covid-19 school closures.
• Heard cases of financial support from the government mixing with election campaigning, or being directed to people who are ‘middle class’ and not ‘poor’.
• Hope the new elected parliamentarians will create more job opportunities for people effected by COVID-19.
