The Myanmar Union Election Commission has dissolved one more political party, which has been already granted permission for set-up, for failing to apply for registration as a political party to the commission within the prescribed period, an official daily reported Wednesday.

The disbanded party was listed as Myanmar New Society Democratic Party, said the New Light of Myanmar.

A total of 37 political parties are qualified to run the coming election set for Nov. 7, according to the official figures.

The commission designated 330 constituencies for parliamentary house of representatives election and 12 constituencies for parliamentary house of nationalities election in each region or state across the country in running the election.

It also designated two constituencies for each township for election of parliamentary representatives in each region or state and one constituency for election of parliamentary representatives for each ethnic minority in each region or state.

The constituencies are scattered in townships in Kachin, Kayah, Kayin, Mon, Rakhine, Shan and Chin states, Sagaing, Tanintharyi, Bago, Magway, Ayeyawaddy, Yangon and Mandalay regions.

Parliamentary candidates are preparing for 1,157 seats, including 494 seats in Myanmar's Union Parliaments (parliamentary house of representatives and parliamentary house of nationalities), 663 spread among 14 regional parliaments.
