Yangon, March (2)

The People’s Party, led by the 88th generation U Ko Ko Gyi, who participated in the 8888 Uprising, issued a statement on February 28 saying that it has decided to continue as a political party, believing in non-violent political approaches.

On February 27 and 28, the People’s Party held its second Central Committee Plenary Meeting, and the party stated that the current age is the most difficult time to resolve civil and military conflict, ethnic equality, and the right to self-determination through political means.

In order to solve the country’s political problems, the People’s Party believes that it is necessary to have a national-level political party that will stand firmly on democracy and federal issues.

The People’s Party also urged the public to contribute as much as possible in terms of manpower, funds, and advice in a statement.

The Than Lwin Times attempted at least four times to reach the People’s Party and Chairman U Ko Ko Gyi for comment on the party registration law, including the decision to continue as a political party, but received no response.

Former NLD MP and Chairman of the National United Democratic Party, U Sein Win (Ma-ubin) also announced on his Facebook account that he has joined the People’s Party.

According to the propaganda newspaper, there are currently 13 political parties that have applied for party establishment and registration with the junta UEC, and there are five political parties that will organize the entire Union.

Moreover, there are up to eight political parties that will be organized only within a region or state, and the miliary council’s Union Election Commission (UEC) is verifying the establishment and registration of those parties.
