Myawaddy, June 16
U Sai Tun Eain has informed the Voice that Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, chair of the National League for Democracy (NLD), and ethnic group leaders will negotiate cooperation outside of the Hluttaw at Suu Kyi’s house on June 18th.
He made the aforesaid statement at the conference of ethnic minorities organized by DKBA in the Sone Se Myaing village, Myawaddy Township, Kayin state
He further explains that the ethnic group leaders who will meet with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi include those who got elected during the 1990 election.
“We will discuss creating a 21st century Panglong conference including all ethnic minorities, and how to work together to strengthen politics outside of the Hluttaw,” says U Sai Tun Eain.
Kayan New Land Party’s peace delegate Thine Ba Han suggests that the United Nationalities Federal Council (UNFC) and National League for Democracy (NLD) should work collaboratively to strengthen politics outside of the Hluttaw.
Policeman Ye Naing, the member of a group striving to bring freedom to the Shan people, remarks that the NLD and ethnic group parties should work together to organize a national conference so that they can negotiate amendments to the 2008 constitution, to which ethnic minorities have objected.
After the ethnic group parties and armed organizations from each state agree to cooperate with each other, they should strive for friendly relations with democratic parties, including the NLD, adds U Sai Tun Eain.
