The chief of Myanmar’s military junta, Min Aung Hlaing, declared that the country would hold elections by August 2023 as part of a broader pledge to restore democracy in the country (Deutsche Welle). If held, these elections would be the first since Myanmar’s military took power in a coup in 2021 (The Guardian). 

Resolution Criteria:
This question will only resolve once voting has begun for a nationwide general election (including early voting) or the 31 December 2023 deadline has passed. It will not resolve on an official announcement of an election date. This question will resolve as "yes" if election voting occurs anywhere in the country, even if voting is cancelled in some locations.
