Nay Pyi Taw, 22 Nov— Speaker of Pyidaungsu Hluttaw and Pyithu Hluttaw Thura U Shwe Mann held talks with local people at a town hall in Thazi of Mandalay Region on Saturday.
In the meeting, the speaker said the more we listen to the voices of the people, the more we will be able to fulfill their needs.
While striving for ensuring peace, stability, development, national reconciliation and the rule of law and democratization of the country, there has been much debate on the 2008 constitutional amendment in Parliament, and the process connected with Parliament will take place when the issue of the constitutional amendment under debate ends on 25th November, said the speaker.
He went to say that reform is a must for an individual, a group and a certain country. It is wrong to take a dogmatic stance against reform, but it is also wrong to make a forced change to points that need not be amended.
The speaker said he was open to suggestions, inviting those present to present their needs freely at the meeting.
In his concluding remarks after hearing reports, the speaker shared his belief that the country would achieve democratization, however hard the path.
After the meeting, the speaker visited Pann-son monastery in Pyawbwe, Yay-le monastery in Thazi and Yanaungmyin monastery in Yamethin and presented offertories to the members of Sangha there.
