Esteemed voters and people
I wish you all auspiciousness and mental and physical wellbeing. I am U Sai Pao Nup, Chairman of Wa National Party of the Wa Self-Administered Division in northern Shan State.
With respect, I would express gratitude to the chairman and members of the Union Election Commission for this opportunity to present political policy, stance and work programmes of our party at this auspicious time when the third general election of the Union of Myanmar is just around the corner.

Esteemed voters and people
We, the Wa party’s members, founded the party with the national spirit of partaking in the collective efforts for the progress of the Wa region and the Union of Myanmar. So, we have laid down the vision, mission and stance of the party for the correctness and accuracy of the work programmes. Before presenting them in detail, I would like to give a brief account of the situation, topography and nature of the Wa Self-Administered Division. Only then will the people understand more about the policy, stance and work programmes of the party.

Esteemed voters and people
Wa Self-Administered Division is in northern Shan State. Wa ethnic people are living in northern, southern and eastern Shan State. During the colonial time, the Wa regions were collectively called Wa State. After Myanmar regained independence, they were put into the areas administered by Shan feudal lords. They were formed as a part of Shan State of the Union of Myanmar. Under the 2008 Constitution of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, Hopang, Mongma and Panwai were grouped into Hopang District, and Nahpan, Metman and Pangsang (Pankham), into Metman District, and the two districts are then formed into Wa-Self Administered Division.
According to the records, 18 ethnic groups are living in the area for 4,000 years. The place had rough and hard transport because of the existence of thick jungles and steep and high mountains. Because of the absence of transportation in the area, there were no mutual relations or cooperation or mutual sharing of knowledge between the people of the same region or between them and the people of other regions or between individuals. So, the area had become isolated.
Poverty went in-depth because of the lack of educational opportunities and lack of knowledge in the whole area. In today’s rapidly developing era, we must shape the future based on the lessons we learn from the past. We must take into the account the present and place in the forefront the three national causes — non-disintegration of Union, non-disintegration of national solidarity and perpetuation of sovereignty, which are the duty of all the citizens. Our party will adopt its policy, stance and work programmes that are always in conformity with the objective conditions, changing trends and development of the country.
