The NUG and ethnic armed groups have called on the United Nations and ASEAN to suspend their assistance, which will collaborate with the Military Council and to change the alternative ways that humanitarian assistance will be delivered effectively to the affected persons

“The National Unity Government (NUG), KNPP, KNU and the CNF jointly issued a joint statement on 30 May calling for a review of the ASEAN and UN Proposed Humanitarian Support to Myanmar,” said Khu Palu Reh, a person in charge of the Karenni National Progressive Party (KNPP).

This is the second time the statement has been issued since the UN and ASEAN did not consider the first suggestion made by the National Unity Government and the ethnic nationalities that it is not possible to provide assistance through the military council.

U Than Naing Soe, a political analyst, argued that ASEAN and the UN may have chosen to continue using this approach because they already know that refugees could face a worse situation if they do not.

The joint statement by the NUG and the ethnic armed groups contained seven key points of appeal: not to continue with the approach that only benefits areas identified by the SAC; to allow third parties to participate in relief work on the ground; to consider adopting the ASEAN Plus (ASEAN Plus) approach; to include ALL stakeholders in an inclusive ways to support on the norms and principles of International Humanitarian Law and best practices; to find alternative ways to support urgent humanitarian needs through cross-border arrangements; request UNOCHA and the ICRC to assist in negotiations with ASEAN, India and Thailand to establish short-term humanitarian corridors to allow emergency supplies to reach those in desperate need; to ensure the delivery of humanitarian support and non-interference by the SAC.

Since it is the end of the month, the lottery situation of the people during this period will be presented.

Lottery traders said that trading had been halted because there was no one to bet on the military council’s Aung Bar Lay lottery.

The State Lottery Department under the Military Council announced that more than 300,000 lottery tickets were sold in May this year, accounting for nearly 20 percent of the total.

The lottery has sold more than 3,000 million kyats, and 70 percent of that will be rewarded as prize money.

On the ground, most of the lottery traders did not even reach the Aung Bar Lay office because there were no people to cast lots, said a lottery trader.

After the military coup, Aung Bar Lay lottery sold only about 150,000 copies.

But the business has not stopped at all because there are people who gamble and some basic buyers who have to deal with the lottery business.

Before the coup, Aung Bar Lay offered up to 1500 million kyats, but now only 500 million kyats, according to a lottery trader.

The people’s support for the National Unity Government’s Spring Lottery was also a major blow to the deteriorating Aung Bar Lay lottery.

Prior to the military coup, the government earned nearly 163 billion kyat a year in tax revenue from the lottery.

People’s boycott was successful because if the lottery is not sold all year round, the military council will lose 151 billion kyat in lottery revenue.
