THE first regular session of the second Pyithu Hluttaw (Lower House) convened in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday, electing U Win Myint as speaker and U T Khun Myat as deputy speaker of the parliament.
U Win Myint represents Tamwe Constituency, and U T Khun Myint represents Kutkai Constituency.
Following a formal transfer of duties and an oath-taking ceremony, newly elected Speaker U Win Myint extended greetings, hailing the day as ‘Myanmar’s historic day, which brings pride in the democratic transition’.
He also pledged to strive, without corruption, in conformity with parliamentary laws, rules and bylaws, to create democratic opportunities in the country.
The speaker also urged MPs to bring honour to the country by observing rules, regulations and disciplines related to the parliament, highlighting a well-known saying that says a lawmaker should not be a man who breaks the law.
The parliament will resume on Thursday.
Meanwhile, the second Amyotha Hluttaw (Upper House) has postponed its first session from Tuesday to Wednesday.—GNLM
