CNF to discuss new plans for ongoing peace process
23 January 2016 — Just more than a week after attending the first Union Peace Conference held in Nay Pyi Taw, leaders of the Chin National Front are heading to Camp Victoria to meet from 25 January to 5 February.
CNF key leaders and representatives from both inside and outside of the country will participate in the 10-day event, discussing issues relating to the ongoing peace process and new leadership within the organization.
Dr Sui Khar, a CNF secretary, said: “Our discussion will focus on reviewing and developing strategies to deal with the ongoing peace process for the next four years.”
He said that the conference would also elect new leaders.
During the emergency conference in December 2011, the CNF changed its organizational structure and system, agreeing that the leadership election will happen once in four years.
Also attended by leaders and representatives of civil society, religious and political organizations, and university student groups, it took place in Mizoram State of India as part of the programme in preparation for the first peace-talk meeting with the Chin State government in January the following year.
The CNF, one of the eight ethnic armed groups that signed the National Ceasefire Agreement in October last year, is expected to talk about ways to engage with the new government of the country – both Union and State.#
