PYIDAUNGSU Hluttaw will work towards having the additional budget bill for the fiscal year 2015-16 approved during its final regular session. Priority will be given to approving important bills out of the remaining bills being discussed in parliament, said Pyidaungsu Hluttaw Speaker Thura U Shwe Mann.
He made the comments during the 13th regular session of the parliament, which resumed Monday following a recess period that included the general election of 8 November.
The Speaker also expressed his delight about Myanmar’s smooth and peaceful general election, saying that he believed that the first general election in the country’s transition period brings pride to Myanmar. He praised the Union Election Commission and the Union Government as well.
He also pledged on behalf of parliament, for Pyidaungsu Hluttaw to cooperate with the government and the Tatmadaw [army] to carry out the remaining tasks during the post-election period.
