President-elect to submit cabinet nominations to parliament on 24 March

THE nominations of cabinet members in the next government will be proposed to the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw on 24 March.
U Win Htein, CEC member of the National League for Democracy, confirmed the schedule at a meeting with reporters yesterday after the meeting of central executive committee members of the party.
Meanwhile, Dr Zaw Myint Maung, the spokesperson of the NLD, told that the party has finalised the process of picking up persons for the posts of union ministers in the cabinet and chief ministers of regions and states.
Some members of the Union Solidarity and Development Party are expected to be appointed as ministers for the sake of national reconciliation, said U Win Htein.
The number of ministers and deputy ministers will reach between 30 and 40, he added.
The Pyidaungsu Hluttaw will hear clarifications on proposal by president-elect U Htin Kyaw and will make a decision on it today.
