NLD look­ing for new mem­bers

The Myanmar Times - - News - SWAN YE HTUT swanye­htut@mm­times.com

THE Na­tional League for Democ­racy is hop­ing to re­cruit new party mem­bers, said U Nyan Win, a mem­ber of the cen­tral ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee.

A July 3 cen­tral ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee meet­ing, held at the City De­vel­op­ment Guest­house in Nay Pyi Taw’s Zabuthiri township, em­pha­sised the re­cruit­ment of new mem­bers, he said.

Although there are no va­can­cies for ex­ec­u­tive mem­bers, the new com­mit­tee mem­bers will be cho­sen through a top-down se­lec­tion process.

“For ex­am­ple, for new mem­bers in Man­dalay Re­gion, lower lev­els have to choose new mem­bers stage-by-stage and then present them to the CEC,” U Nyan Win said. “If there’s a mis­take, CEC mem­bers will cor­rect them.”

Cur­rently, in or­der to qual­ify for the NLD’s youth mem­ber­ship, can­di­dates must be 35 years old or younger. At the next party con­fer­ence, they will set the age limit down to 30.

State Coun­sel­lor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, Nay Pyi Taw Coun­cil chair U Myo Aung and Union Elec­tion Com­mis­sion mem­ber Daw Khin Htay Ky­wel did not at­tend the meet­ing be­cause Union­level mem­bers are not al­lowed to be in­volved in party ac­tiv­i­ties. U Ohn Kyine and Daw Nan Khin Htwe Myint took leave and were not in at­ten­dance.

At­ten­dees in­cluded U Win Htein, U Nyan Win, U Aung Moe Nyo, U Zaw Myint Maung, U Mahn Jonny, Daw May Win Myint, U Nyi Pu, U Win Myint, U Han­thar Myint and U Tun Tun Hein.
