Participation of the Tatmadaw in the leading role of national politics of the State is based on the need of the State, and it is necessary to correctly understand the undertakings of the Tatmadaw for the national interests of the State due to political changes in successive eras, said Chairman of the State Administration Council Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing in meeting with officers, other ranks and families of Pathein Station of South-West Command yesterday morning.
Role of the Tatmadaw and national politics
In his address, the Senior General said according to the State history, geographical conditions and current situation, the Tatmadaw participates in the national cause of the State and the leading role in national politics in accord with the constitution. To restore peace and stability, the country needs a firm institution. Such an institution is the Tatmadaw which will control the nation as a guardian of the State.
Enhancement of education
Weakness in political knowledge is related to the education standard of the citizens. Myanmar has been facing low qualifications of education in successive eras.
People have a lesser number of educated persons. Consequently, they have a narrow scope of knowledge. Health and fitness are of importance in increasing the number of educated persons, so it is necessary to uplift education qualifications in harmony with the health and fitness of the entire nation. It is necessary to take adequate time for the future of the nation by enhancing the education qualification of the entire nation which is the basis for the country within at least five to 10 years with might and main.
Only when the nation restores peace and stability based on political and security measures will the nation develop
Only when these armed conflicts of ethnicities cease can development tasks be undertaken. Only when the nation restores peace and stability based on political and security measures will the nation develop. Myanmar is on the track to democracy, and the Tatmadaw is taking State responsibilities under the Constitution (2008), and all tasks must be done under the law.
Practising a genuine, disciplined democratic system
Efforts are being made for the nation to reach the politically regular path, and national visions and political visions were adopted. In realizing the multiparty democratic system, the people aspire to, it must be a genuine and disciplined one, and the act should not be done under the disguise of democracy musk.
In building the Union based on democracy and federalism, the federalism means sharing of executive powers.
Only when the nation peaceful will the Union based on development and democracy and federalism be built
In undertaking the prosperity of the nation as a national vision, economic development is of importance, and it is necessary to boom the economy of the people. Currently, although some basic situations are good, there remain armed conflicts of ethnics. As all are to make efforts for ensuring the prosperity of the nation, talks are held with the ethnic armed organizations for the restoration of perpetual peace. If peace talks achieve success, further development tasks for the nation can be done as well as an administration based on democracy and federalism can be implemented.
Continuation of appropriate tasks in the leading role of national politics
If the people try hard to correctly carry out the tasks with individual conscience, the country will have deserved progress within five years. The Tatmadaw leads the reform process of the nation, and the Tatmadaw will take a leading role in national politics for the interests of the nation and continues the appropriate tasks in a correct manner. The Senior General explained the political changes, national visions and development tasks to the officers, other ranks and families with the background topics and asked about their needs.
The Senior General then presented foodstuffs to officers, other ranks and families through the commander, and the wife of the Senior General gave cash assistance to the station maternal and child welfare association through the wife of the commander. — MNA
