Arakan Front Party (AFP)

Rakhine State

Arakan Front Party (AFP) was formed by Dr. Aye Maung, the founder of the Rakhine National Development Party, after he broke away from the ANP. In March 2019, he was sentenced to 20 years in prison on charges of high treason and incitement for making an inflammatory speech against the government and accusing it of oppressing Rakhine people. The party is now led by his son, Tin Maung Win, and colleagues.
