The Democratic Party (Myanmar) is a member of the Federal Democracy Alliance, a coalition of 11 political parties formed in late 2013 with the shared objectives of amending the Constitution to establish a federal system of governance; contributing to ongoing peace talks in Burma; and advancing a path for the country less dominated by its ethnic majority Burmans. Another goal of the alliance is to support small political parties’ ability to compete against Burma’s two biggest parties, the National League for Democracy (NLD) and the ruling Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP).
The party says it has a 50,000-strong membership and is fielding about 50 candidates in this year's general election, approximately the same number it put forward in 2010, when it won three seats in the Mandalay and Rangoon regional legislatures.
* States and divisions in red indicate that the party is fielding candidates at the Union or regional level in that jurisdiction.
The party chairman is running for election this year to a Lower House seat in Rangoon's Sanchaung Township.
Than Than Nu
The daughter of Burma's first prime minister, U Nu, will also contest.
