Chairman of the Magway Region Administration Council U Tint Lwin reported to the Senior General on progress of social, economic, health and regional development undertakings, vaccination of COVID-19 and general matters.
Speaking on the occasion, the Senior General said election is essence in democracy. In childhood, students elected the leader of the class through the majority wish. Election of people’s representatives through public wishes is more important in the election. In the time of Tatmadaw government, the Tatmadaw shaped step by step changes of democratization by observing the practice of democracy in other countries before the transition of democracy in Myanmar. The country was paved on the track of democracy the people have aspired and the 2010 multiparty general election was successfully held. After the election, progress were achieved in democratization, political, economic and social affairs, international relations and various sectors in the time of President U Thein Sein but the country faced challenges. As democracy was initiated for the country, it was required to know matters related to democracy.
The election law was amended in 2012 for NLD standing as the opposition party to be able to participate in the election. A new government emerged in 2015 and it ruled the country in the five-year term. In this regard, some criticisms came out for undertakings of the government. It can be seen the government could not achieve deserved progress in the political, economic and social affairs and all sectors the people expected.
The Tatmadaw severally urged the authorities to systematically solve the vote-rigging which emerged in 2020 election. Voting fraud is terrible.Although simple efforts could secure the votes, such move was similar to deceitful acts in the examination to bag higher marks. As they did not solve the errors in voting list and made attempts to summon third Hluttaw for forming a new government, the country was declared under the State of Emergency. According to the assignment of the Tem Pro President, the Tatmadaw assumed the State duty and formed the State Administration Council.

The Senior General stressed the need to strive for the successful implementation of river pumping station projects in Magway Region to irrigate farmlands. Growing of trees must be undertaken to have success in thriving of trees for the sake of posterity.

The Council was formed with balanced number of civilians and military officers while Region and State Administration Council chairpersons were formed with civilians. The Tatmadaw is taking temporary responsibilities for ensuring the emergence of genuine democracy and disciplined, firm democracy. In investigation, officials of the Union Election Commission disclosed they followed instructions of the president without freedom.
Any democratic countries will not accept attempts to win in the election through vote-rigging. It is an act of assaulting democracy. On the first priority, all voter lists are under scrutiny and combined voting lists will be released. A plan is underway to recover loss of the economic sector caused by Covid-19. Peace process will be emphasized in accord with the NCA agreements as much as possible. Upon completion of processes in accord with the provisions of the State of Emergency, a free and fair election will be held in line with the 2008 Constitution, and State power will be handed over the winning party meeting democratic norms.
Magway Region possesses 352 per cent of edible oil sufficiency, dubbed as oil pot of the country. Outbreak of diseases based on edible oil is based on the consumption of cooking oil outside the region in addition to the use of Monosodium glutamate and narcotic drugs.
Magway Region has 76 per cent of rice. The Senior General stressed the need to increase per-acre yield of paddy and share agricultural knowledge how to increase per-acre yield of crops to local farmers as cost will be high in an expansion of farmlands.
A country needs to have electricity, smooth transportation, good communication facilities and the improvement of human resources for health and education systems. Health and education must be encouraged to have better human resources. Preparations are being made to reopen schools closed in the outbreak of COVID-19. Most of the people in more than 800 literates have primary and middle education.
The Senior General stressed the need to strive for the successful implementation of river pumping station projects in Magway Region to irrigate farmlands. Growing of trees must be undertaken to have success in thriving of trees for the sake of posterity.
As 70 per cent of the people are residing in rural area, engaging in agriculture and livestock breeding tasks, it is necessary to establish agriculture and livestock breeding institutes, colleges and universities in a long run. Modern agricultural techniques must be disseminated to farmers. Healthy and clean livestock breeding system must be implemented for a lager production in livestock breeding sector.
Implementation of one village one product system will contribute much to marketable process of domestic products as well as the improvement of tourism industry. Booming of domestic trading can help increase income of the region and improve the living standard of the people. Local administrative bodies need to emphasize development of their regions and the State as good service personnel of the country.
After the meeting, the Senior General and party cordially greeted members of the Magway Region Administration Council and departmental personnel.—MNA
