Nay Pyi Taw, 17 Nov — Pyidaungsu Hluttaw representatives on Monday held a debate on the report of the Constitutional Reform Implementation Committee.
Defence Services Personnel Representative Brig-Gen Thet Tun Aung proposed that the union chief justice, judges of the supreme court of the union, judges of regions and states and judges should be appointed by the president as the government system under the 2008 constitution is a presidential system, while Representative U Sein Tun of Htantabin Township Constituency sought to limit the term of the union election commission. He said that the term of the union election commission should expire after it has submitted its final election report.
Representative Daw Mi Chan Yin of Kyaikmaraw Constituency suggested that the constitution should be amended so that the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw may invite the president to deliver an address at the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw if the latter informs the former to do so.
Representative U Kyaw Min of Letpadan Township Constituency proposed amending the constitution so that it can be amended with the consent of two-thirds or half of the representatives of the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw.
Representative U Sai Po Aung of Muse Constituency said that the number of Pyidaungsu Hluttaw representatives should be increased.
Representative Daw Zar Teliam proposed that a true democratic people’s government should be established by separating the defence and security sector, and that chief ministers and ministers of regions and states should be chosen from parliamentary representatives.
Representative Daw Nan Ni Ni Aye suggested that the rank of parliamentary committees and commissions should be union level so that they can work effectively with other pillars.
