Party registered at UEC in the name of People’s Party

After the third plenary meeting of the Party Forming Committee held on July 8 in Mandalay, the members decided to change their party’s name to ‘People’s Party’ from the controversial previous name 8888 People’s Party.
        People’s Party second leader Ye Naing Aung said, “Union Election Commission told us to submit our new name before July 13 so we came here to submit our party’s new name in accordance with the decision taken at the Mandalay meeting.”
        Unless the 8888 People’s Party submits their party name, flag and logo to Union Election Commission (UEC) before July 13 their registration application will be automatically void so they came and submitted their new name on July 9.
        “According to the procedures of party registration at UEC, they will make an announcement within days of any objection and they will forward our party’s name, flag and logo to Home Ministry for comments and opinions. And we hope that all formalities will be cleared after these procedures,” Ye Naing Aung added.
        He went on to say that there was no party which applied or is applying at UEC with the same name so they expect the UEC would give permission to them.
        They first sent their application to UEC in the name of 8888 People’s Party along with their flag and logo and then UEC objected to their name, flag and logo in an announcement made in daily papers then the UEC received over 200 objections from people.
        The party leaders said at that time that the decision taken by UEC to instruct them to change their name, flag and logo was not in line with the law and prescribed procedures.
