Public’s difficulty in following some existing laws lead to habitual violation



The public unintentionally violates some laws as they find difficulty in following them, Lower House MP Aung San Suu Kyi, the chairperson of Rule of Law, Peace and Stability Committee.

The statement was part of Suu Kyi’s reply that the question that was raised by reporters about the Section 18 of the controversial Peaceful Assembly and Procession Law in Nay Pyi Taw on August 30.

Amending some existing laws like that can help rule of law, said, Suu Kyi, adding that MPs from the National League for Democracy, the opposition party, will submit proposals on controversial existing laws to the parliament.

Many of the protests can be commonly seen in democratic nations. The NLD already accepted that it is required to review the protest law. One of MPs in the party will submit a proposal to the parliament. I thought that the proposal would be on the agenda at the next meeting. As rules and regulations have requirements, protests become unofficial, added Suu Kyi.

There were those being behind the bars under the Section 18 of Peaceful Assembly and Procession Law and therefore, demands said to amend this law. The executive sector is responsible for putting laws enacted by the parliament into effect on the public, said Suu Kyi.

The executive and judicial sectors must mainly perform tasks for prevalence of rule of law. All the entire people need to participate in this process, said Suu Kyi.

There were 16 laws enacted by the Union Assembly parliament at the seventh session of the Union Assembly parliament.
