Yangon-based parties checked: UEC

Union Election Commission members U Aung Saw Win, U Aung Moe Myint, U Ko Ko Lwin, and U Than Aung Kyaw met chairpersons, and members of the Myanmar People’s Democratic Party (MPD), People’s Pioneer Party and National Political Alliances League Party, and inspected the parties’ processes at the Yangon Hluttaw Building yesterday morning.
During the meeting, the UEC members stressed that political parties must organize to meet the specified party strength within 90 days from the date of registration of political parties under the political party registration laws and maintain the proper opening of party offices within 180 days.
They also instructed that the party’s financial rules be drafted and implemented following the instructions and that the use of the party’s flag and signs be properly followed as per the legal requirements.
They also emphasized that they should be careful not to disturb the public during the campaign and that the proportional representation system (PR) will be applied in the next election, so that the representatives of their party will have more opportunities to be elected, and they should train and build strong political parties.
They specifically said that according to the upcoming guidelines on election laws and regulations, during the election period, the violation of rules and regulations by some smaller party members may have a big impact on the relevant parties so officials at all levels of the party should strictly enforce the law.
To ensure the transparency of the election, representatives of political parties will be allowed to participate in the compilation and verification of ballots, so they will cooperate in the success of the election, he added.
Afterwards, Myanmar People’s Democratic Party (MPD) Chairman U Htay Kyaw and People’s Pioneer Party Chairman U Myint Maung Tun and National Political Alliarces League Party Chairman U Thein Kyi presented the conditions of the party’s activities, and the commission members discussed the needs of the parties. — MNA/KZL
