Lo­cal peo­ple staged a demon­stra­tion against MP Ohn Khin from House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives and MP Kin Shein from House of Na­tion­al­i­ties on June 9 over not trans­par­ently spend­ing developmen­t funds al­lot­ted by par­lia­ment for Palaw, Myeik Dis­trict.

About 200 lo­cal elec­tors staged demon­stra­tion against the two MPs for al­legedly mis­ap­pro­pri­at­ing lo­cal area developmen­t funds of 100 mil­lion ky­ats al­lot­ted by par­lia­ment for 2018-19 fi­nan­cial year. Palaw Town­ship, No. 1 Ward ad­min­is­tra­tor Thiha said, “Over 4 mil­lion ky­ats of this fund was al­lot­ted for each ward to be spent in lo­cal developmen­t but they spent only a lit­tle amount of this money. So, we staged this demon­stra­tion in protest.”
