The Mro National Development Party’s predecessor, the Mro or Khami National Solidarity Organisation, won one seat out of four contested constituencies in the 1990 general elections, the results of which were later annulled by the military.
The party contested the 2010 general elections in nine constituencies but failed to win any seats. It changed its name to the Mro National Development Party in 2014.
The party aims to promote the rights and welfare of the Mro people, a small ethnic minority who live in parts of Rakhine State. On Nov. 8, six candidates of the party will contest in the state’s Mrauk U, Kyauktaw, Buthidaung, Pauktaw and Ponnagyun townships.
