New Delhi (Mizzima) –The ‘National Coalition Government of Union of Burma’ (NCGUB) in exile will elect its new Prime Minister at a meeting to be held in Ireland this month.
Dr. San Aung, one of the Council of Ministers of NCGUB, said that the MPs in exile will elect their new PM at this meeting held once every four years by secret ballot.
Over 30 MPs from the ‘Members of Parliamentary Union’ (MPU) will attend the meeting and they will elect the new PM, discuss the current political situation in Burma and their future plans.
The first part of the 10-day meeting will be the exclusive MP meeting and the second half (5-daya meeting) will be attended by ‘Ethnic Nationalities Council’ (ENC), ‘Student and the Youth Congress of Burma’ (SYCB) among others.
Meanwhile, Dr. San Aung also said that the recent announcement made by exile based alliance, ‘National Council of Union of Burma’ (NCUB), announcing its plan of forming a new government of their own should not have been made.
“NCUB is not a party, it’s an alliance. The resolution of this alliance should be adopted by consensus only after thorough deliberations. No one can flout and bypass this rule. If a member organization of this alliance wants to do something, it can do it on its own, but cannot misuse and exploit the leverage of this alliance,” he said.
The ‘National Coalition Government of the Union of Burma’ (NCGUB) was formed with MPs-elect in exile who won the 1990 general elections and are based in Washington D.C. USA. Dr. Sein Win, the cousin brother of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, is serving as PM in this government. http://www.mizzima.com/news/regional/1541-mps-to-elect-new-ncgub-pm-in-exile.html
