Lower House speaker Shwe Manh last week rejected a proposal made by MP Aung Zin from National Democratic Force Party to accuse persons in executive branches and other state agencies.
Aung Zin’s proposal asked the parliament to set rule and regulations for accusations to the President, Vice presidents, the Union Ministers, the Union Chief Justice, the Union Supreme Court judges, the chairman and members of Constitutional Tribunal and the Union Auditor-General in accordance with the Constitution.
The proposal was rejected because it was untimely and incomplete, Shwe Manh said.
”The matters related to the proposal are already mentioned in the Constitution. Respective procedures are also pointed out phase by phase in the Constitution,” he said.
“In my opinion, it should not be submitted to the parliament, said the Lower House Speaker Shwe Manh and added that Aung Zin insisted to propose the proposal because of his duty as a representative of his party.
“We should carry out the tasks in the parliament regardless of personality, localism, racism and the party attachment.”
