Two more ministers from Myanmar's central Bago region resigned following those in southwestern Ayeyawaddy region and central Magway region. 

According to an order of the President's Office issued late on Thursday, the two regional ministers, who were approved for resignation, are U Kyaw Min San, minister of Natural Resources, Forests and Environmental Conservation, and U Maung Maung Lwin, minister of Development and Social Affairs. 

Their resignations have brought the total number of such ministers, including a chief minister in Ayayawaddy region, to six. 

There were 14 regional or state chief ministers and related ministers appointed by the incumbent government which was led by the National League for Democracy (NLD). The party won the November 2015 general election and the incumbent government took office on March 30, 2016.
