1. Union Prime Minister Mahn Winn Khing Thann says that a revolutionary turning point is soon to come

Union Minister Mahn Winn Khaing Thann stated during the meeting of the Interim Local Administrative Central Committee (ILACC) on December 7 that a revolutionary turning point is on the horizon.

2. Union Minister Dr. Tu Hkawng highlights the crucial role played by CDM medical personnel in Operation 1027

Union Minister Dr. Tu Hkawng emphasized the significant contribution of medical personnel involved in the Civil Disobedience Movement (CDM) during Operation 1027 in a post on December 8.

“There are two ministers of MONREC (NUG), Khun Bedu and Khun Saw Hpu, who are leading the fight in Karenni. They have a lot of CDM employees who are assisting them there, particularly those in the medical field. The Ministry of Health has indeed supplied medical assistance to the area; however, due to the imbalance between supply and demand, there remains a substantial need. In this context, the contribution of CDM medical personnel proves highly effective. It can be asserted that the presence of medical professionals within each ethnic revolutionary force serves as a crucial backup and is immensely beneficial. These professionals, with their experience, can seamlessly fill the required roles without the need for additional training. Apart from that, they play a crucial role in Operation 1027 as well,” Union Minister Dr. Tu Hkawng stated.

Currently, numerous CDM medical personnel are actively serving in frontline hospitals and clinics under the Ministry of Health of the National Unity Government.
