DSC 0013

Political parties suggested amendments to the education law at the Amyotha Hluttaw (Upper House) on Friday.
Fifteen political parties held discussions with the Bill Committee and the Commission for Political, Economic and Legal Affairs, with the chairman of the Bill Committee urging participants to pool ideas to draft a bill to amend the National Education Law.
It took nearly two years of coordination with international scholars and UN agencies for the national education bill to become a law, he stated. Despite being passed by parliament, the law sparked protests, prompting authorities to rework it.
Student protesters accepted the parliament’s invitation to discuss the amendment to the law, but were unable to send a representative, prompting them to ask for another chance. According to the chairman, the parliament will inform them of a new date two or three days in advance. He pledged his committee will give careful consideration and special attention to suggestions made by political parties in writing the bill.
The political parties contributed their opinions to the amendment to the National Education Law.
