Nay Pyi Taw, 20 Nov — The Pyidaungsu Hluttaw on Thursday continued its debate on the report of the Constitutional Amendment Implementation Committee.
Defence Services Personnel Representative Lt-Col Moe Kyaw Oo was against conferring powers for defence, security, foreign affairs and finance to states and regions, arguing that new laws enacted by states and regions may contradict one another and this may undermine national unity.
Representative Daw Phyu Phyu Thin of Mingala Taungnyunt Constituency said that a constitution that is simple and easy to understand helps the public and contributes to the stability of the country.
Representative U Salai Khwe Yan of Chin State Constituency-12 said that a solution must be sought through negotiations in the interests of the nation amidst challenges and that section 436 of the constitution should be open to amendment.
The Pyidaungsu Hluttaw is debating the report until 25 November.
