Ye Myint (Burmese: ရဲမြင့်) was the Chief Minister of Mandalay Region, Myanmar from 2011 to 2016. He is a former Lieutenant General in the Myanmar Army and former Chief of Military Affairs Security.[1]

A member of the Union Solidarity and Development Party, he was elected to represent Pyinoolwin Township Constituency No. 2 as a Mandalay Region Hluttaw representative in the 2010 Burmese general election.[2]

Terrorist Attack and Fire[edit]

In January 2014, a convoy carrying Ye Myint and two other regional ministers, was hit by a landmine attack, at Naungcho, on the Mogok-Pyinoolwin highway, on the way back to Mandalay.[3] On 19 April 2014, Ye Myint's Mandalay home caught fire, caused by an overheated surge protector connected to an air conditioning unit.[4] On 22 April 2014, he was charged under Article 285 of the Penal Code for negligence in a fire.
