MBtv: Myanmar Muslim MP-elect vows to be rights champion

Myanmar’s Sithu Maung is one of just two Muslims out of more than 1,100 candidates for Aung San Suu Kyi’s ruling National League for Democracy (NLD) party — up from zero in the last election in 2015. “I must work for people of all religions in this township, particularly those who are discriminated against and oppressed or deprived of human rights,” says the 33-year-old.
