Myanmar Parliamentary Union held a meeting yesterday to review the budget scrutinizing process for projects in regions and states and Hluttaw affairs.
In his opening remarks at the meeting at the Hluttaw building in Nay Pyi Taw, U T Khun Myat, Speaker of Pyidaungsu Hluttaw and Chairman of the MPU, suggested region and state Hluttaws to draft budget scrutinizing bill as there is no time frame for the scrutinizing budget for the projects in regions and states.
Regarding legislation, the Legal Affairs and Special Cases Assessment Commission would review and report the current situation at the meeting, said U T Khun Myat, adding that Speakers of the region and state Hluttaws are to take part in the discussion openly.
Mahn Win Khaing Than, Vice Chairman of the MPU and Speaker of Amyotha Hluttaw, underscored the importance of sufficient time for scrutinizing the budgets submitted by region and state governments, saying that it is found that some inconveniences happened due to time constraints for reviewing the budgets by the Hluttaw.
The Union Budget Law has been enacted to scrutinize the National Planning and Budget bills at Pyidaungsu Hluttaw, he added, saying that the date when the Union Government should submit the bills to the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw and the date when the Hluttaw’s scrutinizing committee submit their report to the Hluttaw has been set.
Afterwards, U Tun Tun Hein, Secretary of MPU and Speaker of Pyidaungsu Hluttaw, reported on the resolutions of meeting No. 3/2018.
U Aye Tha Aung, member of the MPU and Speaker of Amyotha Hluttaw called for cooperation in Hlutttaw’s undertakings and situation of work being carried out by the Hluttaw.
At the meeting, Union Minister for Planning and Finance U Soe Win and Deputy Minister U Maung Maung Win discussed matters related to projects in regions and states and process for submitting the annual budget bill.
Pyidaungsu Hluttaw Legal Affairs and Special Cases Assessment Commission suggested measures to be taken to prevent contradictions and differences between laws enacted by Pyidaungsu Hluttaw and regional and state Hluttaws.
