Kayah State Consultative Council Will Work With Interim Govt

By Kantarawaddy Times

Kayah State Consultative Council (KSCC) pledged to cooperate with the interim government established by Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (CRPH), which consists of lawmakers ousted during a coup nearly three months ago.

KSCC will work with National Unity Government (NUG) and National Unity Consultative Committee (NUCC), while attempting to establish a government in Kayah State.

KSCC spokesperson told Kantarawaddy Times they want control of their state during the interim period and will help CRPH draft a constitution that guarantees a federal democratic union once there is political stability.

In principle, the Federal Democracy Charter, which CRPH released on March 31 after the annulment of the 2008 Constitution, is what ethnic nationalities have long sought, the spokesperson said.

KSCC was formed in Karenni State (Kayah State) on April 9. Its membership includes MPs who won in the last election, ethnic armed organization representatives, civil societies and youth and women organizations.
