Nay Pyi Taw, 18 Nov — The Pyiduangsu Hluttaw on Tuesday discussed the report submitted by a committee responsible for the implementation and amendment of the constitution.
Daw Sanda Min of the Zabyuthiri constituency said that constitutional change is not a one-time matter and it needs amending step by step, adding that the purpose of constitutional amendment is to reinforce national reconciliation rather than instigating conflicts. She called for greater cooperation in changing the constitution within the framework of the law to ensure a better future of the country.
U Sai Kyaw Zaw Than of the Shan State constituency-2 pointed out that the report should be discussed with a focus on national stability and development, national integrity, national reconciliation and rule of law.
Col Hla Win Aung, a defence services personnel representative, noted that amending the constitution is unavoidable as public desires change with the passage of time, adding that the constitution should be changed in national and public interests in line with the law, if any of its sections or articles limits the efficiency and freedom of executive, legislative and judicial branches.
U Naing Ngan Lin of the Dekkhinathiri constituency expressed his belief that constitutional change will help the democratic system take shape, thereby propelling internal peace processes. He called for a compromise solution to national reconciliation and mutual understanding and trust. U Myint Tun of the Bago Region constituency-10 suggested an increased role of people and their representatives in constitutional amendment.
