Pyithu Hluttaw session held with 12th day meeting

Nay Pyi Taw, 30 Sept — The 12th day meeting of 11th Pyithu Hluttaw (Lower House) session was held here on Tuesday.
U Win Htain, representative from Meiktila township constituency, asked whether to design a curriculum of democracy at the civil service institutes in Phaunggyi of lower Myanmar and Zibingyi of upper Myanmar.
U Kyaw Thu, chairman of the Union Civil Services Board, said that although a curriculum on democracy has not been designed for the institutes of Civil Service, management courses for the senior government officials have been conducted since 2013 in line with the guidelines of the Head of State.
He also said that teachers from institutes of civil service could attend the lectures and seminars on management courses of local and foreign experts.
The chairman said that discussions are underway with the United Nations Development Programme to design democracy course at the institutes of civil service.
The Speaker of Pyithu Hluttaw then urged the observing commission to submit at least seven ways for public and parliamentary members not later than 21 October 2014 to develop an appropriate electoral system in Myanmar.
Daw Nan Wah Nu, representative from Kunhing township constituency of Shan State, discussed that the rule of law and stability are concerned not only with the Committee of Rule of Law and Stability, but also with all the participants in the three estates of legislative, executive and jurisdictional sectors, as well as media and public.
Judge of the Supreme Court of the Union U Soe Nyunt said that there is no monitoring group for courts in well-developed democracies as this practice could tarnish the dignity of courts, causing the mistrust of potential foreign investors.
He pointed out that the People Jurisdiction Committee was formed in 1973 during the preliminary age of public-centred jurisdictional system in the country, but the committee tried to influence and control the judicial sector before it was revoked.
It would be contrary to the State Constitution if the independent groups and organizations which have no authority of jurisdiction assigned by law were formed to monitor the court proceedings.
