Outspoken former Yangon Region lawmaker Daw Nyo Nyo Thin has opened a school for those who want to become involved in politics. Launching the School of Law, Gender & Politics in Yangon on August 6, Nyo Nyo Thin said it was aimed at meeting a need for professional politicians and administrators in government. The anti-corruption crusader won a seat in the Yangon regional assembly for the Democratic Party in 2010 but lost to the National League for Democracy when she stood as an independent for the Pyithu Hluttaw seat of Bahan Township in 2015. She spoke to Frontier’s Su Myat Mon.
