Political Party Unification Moves Forward With Opening of New Office


Political Party Unification Moves Forward With Opening of New Office

Sunday, November 4, 2012

The two Mon political parties, the All Mon Regions Democracy Party (AMDP) and Mon Democracy Party (MDP), opened one office in Kamarwet Village in Mudon Township, Mon State on November 1 as a step to improve the relationship between the two parties.

The newly opened office is intended to be a place where both parties can gather, negotiate and cooperate together as a unified party. Additionally, they plan to run activities in the future out of this office.

About 150 people attended the opening of the office, and senior leaders from both parties were present at the ribbon-cutting ceremony, according to Mon sources.

“We are going to join as one party in the future; we have already agreed on that,” spoke senior MDP leader Dr. Min Kyi Win at the ceremony.

Mon State’s Election Commission asked leaders of the two political parties whether there would be a problem in opening one office, but party leaders told the commission they experienced no problems in creating one office for both parties, according to Dr. Min Kyi Win.

Mon people and Buddhist monks have been negotiating a unification of the two Mon political parties for nearly a year, and this marked the first time the two parties have reached an agreement to open one office. Many Mon residents are relieved and see this as a positive sign for future cooperation between the two parties.

“Their agreement to open this office is a good sign, I think. Many positives can happen in the future for these two parties because of this initial agreement,” said the Ven. Saukha Hongsar, a senior Mon Buddhist monk in Thanbyuzayat Township, Mon State and member of the negotiating committee between the two political parties.

COMMENTS: The task for both parties is simple. Each Mon who is over 18 year of age should be informed, engaged and involved in local social, cultural and political activities that could informed local issues on health, education, economy and other social issues such as environment and land rights. If 60% of local population in Mon State has engaged in local issues from land rights, and other local development such as water security and food security, the politic has begins there. If 70% of local people in Mon State are informed and engaged with local issues from building health centre, local school and local hospital, the task of two Mon parties are about to completed 50% of the job. However, if two Mon parties are lack on leadership for human resources, financial resources and good association management under a very complex democratic system, the dream of formation of a Mon state government within Mon speaking population is tin. However, the foundation of Mon political shall be inclusiveness from all sect of population. It is leadership at the end of the day those who dare to work and care to the nation. Politic is a battle of ideas. It is time that Mon leaders look beyond Mon State and beyond Rangoon. We live in small land but our land is linked with other people's land. It is our human resource that matters our lives. Education for Mon youth must be invested for Mon nationhood in 2020 under federalism. It is a noble call for all.
