MP criticizes suspension of recall bill

Nay Pyi Taw, 20 Aug— A well-known member of parliament at the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw on Thursday criticized the decision to suspend the recall bill, complaining that the parliament is heavy with self-seekers.
In an interview, MP U Hla Swe said that voters do have the right to recall the representatives who fail to bring about development in their region.
“That law is essential for the electorates to punish their representatives,” he said, adding that it is awful that the suspended bill will not be able to bring back silent parliamentarians.
The motion to enact the bill to recall members of parliament was defeated by 264 votes to 235. MNA
