In a democratic system, no one branch should have too much power

It is undeniable that most developed countries with high living standards have practised the democratic system, and countries under dictatorship are under the poverty line with lower economic, social and education standards.
It shows that democratic rights and the rule of law can guarantee security and prosperity to the citizens.
Only when a country is under the rule of law can its peoples enjoy peace and stability.
Today, Myanmar is on the road to democracy. Legislative, executive and judiciary pillars of the democratic system should be in conformity with the existing laws, without influencing and interfering with each other.
But they should be subjected to the checks-and-balances system to make sure no one branch is able to wield too much power.
The Hluttaw is a part of a democracy, and so is political pluralism. When we build a country under a democratic system, we need to have tolerance, magnanimity, forgiveness, cooperation, mutual respect and mutual trust.
Hluttaw members who take part in the legislative branch, should review, amend and make laws in order that the laws can be adaptable to modern times. The laws should be beneficial to the country and the people.
When they debate or ask questions or submit motions in the
Hluttaw, they should adhere to parliamentary procedures and regulations.
Meanwhile, lawmakers have the right to coordinate with local authorities and work together for the development of their respective constituencies within their constitutional rights.
But, keeping in mind the need to safeguard the system of checks and balances, they should be cautious that they do not interfere with the other branches of government.
