The National League for Democracy (NLD), Myanmar’s major opposition party, is planning to publish a daily newspaper, said Ohn Kyaing, a former journalist and party member.
Ohn Kyaing, publisher of the party’s D Wave Weekly Journal, also sits as a member of parliament.
He said the publication will also be called “D Wave”, adding that it will be objective and publish various views.
Earlier on December 30, NLD chairman Aung San Suu Kyi, revealed plans to turn D Wave into a daily publication following the government’s recent decision to allow daily newspapers starting April. Over the past five decades, the government strictly controlled the media and banned private newspapers.
