Mandalay City Development Committee receives 36 applications

THE Mandalay City Development Committee (MCDC) received over 36 membership applications from Maha Aungmye and Aungmyethazan townships between 1 and 5 August, the commission’s spokesperson said.
Eleven committee members were relieved of their duties by the MCDC, including the deputy mayor and secretary under the order 19/2016 released on 7 July. New membership applications were invited from residents across the city earlier this month. Under the committee’s rules, five will be chosen from the former members.
The committee sold 54 application forms, from which 36 applications have been submitted.
A majority of applicants are from Maha Aungmye Township, followed by Chanayethaza Township with seven applicants and Chanmyathazi with six applicants. Pyigyitagun and Amarapura townships have fewer than three. Among the applicants, only one woman, from Aungmyethazan Township, submitted a membership application to the MCDC.
The regional government has the authority to directly appoint five members. The rest will be selected in the September through a voting system.—Aung Thant Khaing
