mizzima:Aye Lwin, a former 88 generation student and leader of the group, said they will have two parties to contest the election, believing the process could set Burma on the road to political reform, though democracy in Burma will admittedly require more time to evolve into a mature and stable political institution.”We will have two parties to contest the election,” Aye Lwin told Mizzima on Tuesday. While he will be leading the National Political League (Union of Myanmar) as its chairman, the 88 generation students (Union of Myanmar) will be led by other former students who participated in the 1988 general uprising.
“We are waiting for the announcement of the Election Law and specifics regarding the registration of political parties,” he said.
Aye Lwin added that the election is the only way forward for Burma, which has remained in a virtual political stalemate for the past 20 years.
Shame on you Aye Lwin!
