The ultimate aim of the State Administration Council is to hold a free and fair multiparty democratic general election, said Chairman of the State Administration Council Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing.
The Senior General unveiled the ultimate aim of the SAC in his speech delivered at the meeting 3/2023 of the SAC at the SAC Chairman Office in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday.The Senior General spotlighted that endeavours must be poured out to ensure peace and stability of the entire nation for the successful holding of the free and fair multiparty democratic general election, urging those present to compile a complete voter list based on correct data for the eligible voters to cast votes across the nation.
The Senior General continued that although an election must be held without fail, such an election must be systematic and a general election, contributing to strengthening the democratic system. The Senior General commented that weakness can be seen in the democratization process, and democratic rights should not be demanded in terror ways, he added.
To hold the election, the Senior General underscored that necessary preparations must be undertaken in late 2023 in order to enumerate the census in 2024. If so, the population of the nation can be approved and the voter list can be compiled.
The Senior General unveiled that handing over the State’s responsibilities to the elected government is the primary duty of the current government. With regard to building the Union, the Senior General noted that the democratic system and federal administration are inseparable in building the Union based on democratic and federal systems, and all stakeholders building the Union based on democratic and federal systems must be intellectuals and intelligentsia.
Regarding the peace process, the Senior General highlighted that the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw-approved NCA will be legally valid and never annulled. The Senior General recounted his experience in signing the NCA by representing the government sector, pledging that Tatmadaw will firmly stand on NCA in initiating the peace process as an official of an ethnic armed organization irresponsibly expressed his remarks related to the NCA. On 15 October 2015, the NCA was signed on a grand scale by representatives from the government, the Hluttaw, Tatmadaw and ethnic armed organizations in the presence of diplomats from China, India, Japan and Thailand in addition to the UN and local witnesses. As such, the 8th anniversary of NCA will be celebrated on coming 15 October, he added.
In the education sector, the Senior General said that a learning society for the KG+9 scheme will be upgraded to the agriculture, livestock and technical institutes and then a plan is underway to establish a polytechnic institute for students to study applied science subjects.
He continued to say that there are 13,879 basic education middle schools, 21,550 primary schools in rural areas, and 1,626 middle schools and 3,318 primary schools in urban areas. The ratio of middle schools in rural areas to urban areas is 8:1 and primary schools 6.5:1. Hence, all ethnic people need to have literacy and school education.
The Senior General disclosed the plan to establish universities, colleges and institutes to turn out professionals and human resources skilful for the agriculture and livestock sectors. The number of human resources must be turned out to improve production for the promotion of the State economy.
Concerning the counter-terrorism measure, the Senior General noted that although the government strives for the equitable development of all parts of the entire nation, the regions suffering impacts of terror acts cannot see region-wise development. Practically, residents will have to enjoy the development. Hence, people have to participate in counter-terrorism and peace and stability for the sake of relevant regions, he noted. — MNA/TTA
