Any thoughts on these 2 nominations?
Myauk-U seemed to be on track, but with the Rohingya refugee crisis and the unrest and violence in Rakhine State, this nomination may have been shelved. Original article
(Jan 2018)) that indicated 2020. Here is the (April 2018) article
that claims the nomination has been put on hold.
Sweden's only remaining tentative nomination is something of an enigma, since we don't really know much about this nomination except for vague reports more than one year ago. There was even talk of a transnational nomination. I've searched considerably, but there has been nothing since March 2017 in this article
. This was a hopeful article, stating at the earliest the nomination could be submitted in February 2019.
Has the original Ancient Plovdiv nomination been replaced with a more narrowed version? If so, its unlikely we'll see this nomination in 2020, right?
