23 August 2013: The Mon national assembly is set to take place in the capital city of Moulmein, Mon State in December this year.

“These are necessary to create our own fate,” Nai Tun Aung was quoted as saying by the Independent Mon News Agency.

The organizing executive committee of the newly formed MNC is made up of two members from each political party, and nine members from social and overseas organizations.#
