The Arakan Na­tional Party (ANP) Vice-Chair­man Khaing Pyi Soe said that their sec­ond party congress would not be held in early 2018 as planned due to a po­lit­i­cal cri­sis in the party. Ac­cord­ing to the party con­sti­tu­tion, the party congress should be held ev­ery five year but a res­o­lu­tion was passed at the Cen­tral Com­mit­tee ple­nary meeting held in De­cem­ber 2015 which de­cided to hold the sec­ond congress in De­cem­ber 2017 on the grounds of in­sta­bil­ity in the party, but this was also not pos­si­ble. Cur­rently the party is con­sid­er­ing a res­ig­na­tion let­ter ten­dered by cur­rent party chair­man Dr. Aye Maung. Dr. Aye Maung faces a high trea­son charge and is cur­rently in ju­di­cial cus­tody in Sit­twe prison.
