Fifty-six Burmese political parties have approved a framework for post-ceasefire political dialogue.
The Peace and Political Framework Drafting Committee submitted a draft document to representatives of 56 parties on November 25-26, after which it was swiftly approved.
“The main aim is to establish a federal union,” said Saw Than Myint, the vice-chairman of the Federal Union Party. “The results [of the political dialogue] will involve decisions taken by all stakeholders, and they will include amendments to the Constitution.”
The representatives of the 56 political parties are now scheduled to meet with other parties that were not included in the Drafting Committee, the opposition National League for Democracy being the most noteworthy.
