The Myanmar Press Council held a meeting yesterday afternoon in Yangon. The meeting was attended by Acting Chairman of the Myanmar Press Council Dr Myo Thant Tin, and the members.
The meeting focused on the council’s activities and the processes to proceed in line with the council’s law, rules, and regulations.
“Today is the meeting with the new council members, as many of the members quit, and now there are only two,” said Dr Myo Thant Tin, the council’s Acting Chairman.
“According to the Press Law, if there are less than 15 people, they have to be added. The selection committee re-elected 14 members today, and with the remaining two, there are 16. As there are more than 15 members, it is informed to the public under the rules and regulations,” he added.
He also said the Press Council is the essential fourth pillar as the country moves towards democracy. They are working to prevent this fourth pillar from collapsing, adding that it is critical for the news.
Among the elected members, 11 were nominated by relevant media organizations, and there will be 19 council members, including three private members who will be elected on 30 April. — MNA
