The State-run media will broadcast and publish the work done by the incumbent government in its third year as part of efforts for fulfilling the people’s right to information about what their elected representatives have achieved.
“People elected the government and they have the right to know how the government is running its administrative machinery and how it spent the revenue contributed by the people in the form of tax,” said Deputy Minister U Aung Hla Tun at the coordination meeting for covering the performance of the incumbent government in the state-run media. The meeting was held at the ministry in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday.
The ruling National League for Democracy assumed office in March 2016. State-run broadcast media MRTV and the print media have reported on the government’s performance at the end of every year since it took office.
Filming for the third-year performance report will be carried out from 11 to 26 March and it will be broadcast and published from 1 April, with two ministries covered per day.
At the meeting, officials of Union-level institutions and governments discussed the program for broadcasting and publishing, and the meeting came to an end with concluding remarks by the deputy minister.
