This rumour is probably true and is of low priority – here's why:
A rumour has been spread long ago that a nationalist political party would register and
preparing for the election. Though, the information is confirmed when Dr Nay Zin Latt, an
advisor to President Thein Sein and head of political management school, interviewed to
The Voice Journal on 21st April that he is a chairman of the party and about 60 of his
postgraduate students would also join the party.
The Voice also interview a member of executive committee U Pite Tin who revealed the
detail design of the party’s flag, which will be red colour and golden peacock at the middle.
The party is preparing to join 2015 general election, planned to compete for 400 seats and
targeting to be elected for 10% of the seats in the parliament. According to Ma Mya
Nandar form election watchdog New Myanmar organisation, who said, retired generals
from SPDC involved in the party such as General Tun Kyi and General Nyut Tin. She also
mentioned that former army intelligence officers who were forced to retired or fired along
with General Khin Nyut, are also interested to join the party and they are now negotiating
with MPC. General Khin Nyut once publically expressed his intention soon after released
from the jail that he would like to carry on nationalism. Since then critics on Burma politics
are expected him to involve in the new nationalist party.
