Following this secretary of Joint Committee on Scrutinizing the second bill amending the Constitution Dr Myat Nyana Soe read the committee report on the committee’s findings and comments on a bill amending the Constitution for the second time signed and submitted by 145 Pyidaungsu Hluttaw representatives including U Sai Than Naing of Kayin State constituency 5.
Dr Myat Nyana Soe said that in addition to this present bill, there were a total of five bills to amend the Constitution that were submitted to the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw. The committee found that the five bills were not to amend the entire 2008 Constitution but to amend certain provisions only.
A Joint Committee on Amending the 2018 Constitution made up of political party groups in the Hluttaw and independent Hluttaw representatives proportionately was formed with an assignment to draw up a bill amending the Constitution and submit to the Hluttaw.
Once this committee submits the bill, it would be appropriate for the Joint Committee on Scrutinizing the second bill amending the Constitution formed with all members of Pyithu Hluttaw and Amyotha Hluttaw bill committees to study this bill together with the five bills. This was the finding and comments of the majority of the members of the Joint Committee on Scrutinizing the second bill amending the Constitution.
However, some Joint Committee on Scrutinizing the second bill amending the Constitution members Daw Nan Ni Ni Aye, Brig-Gen Maung Maung and Brig-Gen Tint Lwin suggested on separately discussing the bills in the Hluttaw.
After the report was read, Pyidaungsu Hluttaw Speaker U T Khun Myat announced for Hluttaw representatives who want to discuss the matter to register their names.
