Mynamar (Burma): Recall of representative launched

Petitioners are trying to recall Mandalay Region’s Tada Oo township's  National League for Democracy Pyithu Hluttaw representative, Daw Khin Thandar.
The issue has to do with alleged misdeeds in helping elect her brother to a ward assembly. Apparently, Mynamar has a malfeasance standard:
hluttaw representatives can be recalled for high treason, breaching the constitution, misbehavior failing to meet the criteria for a hluttaw representative and inefficient discharge of duties.
Petitioners need at least 1 percent of the “original” voters in the electorate to submit a complaint to the Union Election Commission, which then investigates the allegation. However, to allow a recall has not been approved.
