THE Union Peace Dialogue Joint Committee (UPDJC) pledged yesterday to hold the 21st century Panglong conference successfully, agreeing to put forward 16 representatives.
The UPDJC will be reformed with 16 representatives from the government, 16 from ethnic armed groups and 10 from political parties.
State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi said at the first day of the meeting on Friday that the participation of political parties should be based on their representation in parliament, adding that parties that have at least one representative in a parliament will be allowed to attend the peace conference.
The 21st Century Panglong conference will be convened based on the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA), said State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi in her capacity as chairperson of the Union-level Peace Dialogue Joint Committee (UPDJC) at a committee meeting yesterday in Nay Pyi Taw, adding that the UPDJC will thus remain active during the peace process.
