A seminar on establishing a political party is held at the UMFCCI in Yangon in March. The formation of party-organising committees in seven regions is the top priority for the leaders of the 1988 generation of student leaders, sources say.
In states with ethnic populations, the group would focus on forming alliances with indigenous people’s parties, according to Ye Naing Aung, member of the central committee for party-building.
“It’s not that we won’t to do any activities in ethnic states. We will focus on making alliances with ethnic parties. But first the regions are a priority,” Ye Naing Aung said.
The group has organising committees in Magway and Ayeyawady and another was being added in Bago, he said.
A seminar on setting up a political party was held at the Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry in Yangon on March 30.
Ye Naing Aung said: “We will decide the party’s logo and name by November. The registration will be in January.”
Many of the student leaders, including Ko Ko Gyi, Min Zeya and Mya Aye, rose to prominence during the uprising against the dictatorship in 1988.
