In the new law, the minimum requirement for party membership was reduced from 100,000 to 50,000 members, and the minimum proportion of townships that parties have to operate in was reduced from half to one-third of all townships, according to the report.

The new law also included changes in the time frame for mobilizing party members and the definition of "by-election," the media report said.

Myanmar's State Administration Council enacted the Political Parties Registration Law on Jan. 26, 2023.
