U SEIN Win, Pyithu Hlut­taw MP of Maubin constituency, who had re­signed from the Na­tional League for Democ­racy and submitted a re­quest to the Union Elec­tion Com­mis­sion (UEC) to be recog­nised as an in­de­pen­dent MP, said that the com­mis­sion ap­proved his ap­pli­ca­tion af­ter four months.

“I’ve re­ceived the Union Elec­tion Com­mis­sion ap­pro­ba­tion on the 10 of this month. It con­firmed my sta­tus as an in­de­pen­dent MP,” he told The Myan­mar Times on Novem­ber 14.

“In ac­cor­dance to the de­ci­sion made dur­ing the (18/2017) meet­ing of the Union Elec­tion Com­mis­sion on Novem­ber 9, 2017, U Sein Win has been recog­nised as an in­de­pen­dent MP,” reads UEC’s re­ply.

U Sein Win re­marked that he was not sat­is­fied with the com­mis­sion’s per­for­mance as his re­quest took four months to be pro­cessed.

“Sus­pend­ing work for over three to four months is un­suit­able. I don’t want to give any fur­ther com­ments,” he said.

He added that he had also ap­plied to the com­mis­sion to regis­ter a party named the “Na­tional United Demo­cratic (NUD)”. He re­signed from the NLD to freely carry out mat­ters re­lat­ing to the con­fis­ca­tion of farm­ers’ lands, he said.
