Myanmar MPs propose to amend laws to block non-citizens from voting

Members of Parliament in Myanmar have submitted bills to amend the parliamentary election laws which allow temporary citizenship card holders to vote.

MP Ba Shein from Kyaukphyu Constituency in Rakhine State said on Monday that the bills — the Lower House Election Law, Upper House Election Law and Regional Parliament Election Law — would be discussed during the forthcoming 8th parliamentary session in Nay Pyi Taw.

“We have submitted those bills to amend the laws that allow non-citizens to cast votes. This is contrary with the constitution. That issue may be deal with in the upcoming parliamentary session,” said Ba Shein from the Rakhine Nationalities Development Party (RNDP).

All the parliamentary election laws passed during the time of the former military regime give the so-called “white card holders” the right to vote though they are not citizens of Myanmar.

Upper House MP Dr Aye Maung from RNDP said the bills were submitted to the Lower House of Parliament. Another bill amending the right for non-citizens to establish political parties had also been submitted and it would be discussed in Parliament, he added.

The Lower House’s Joint Bill Committee chairman said on Monday that many laws needed amendments based on the constitution while the 1982 Citizenship Law also needed to be reviewed. Systematic measures would be taken after all the MPs had held discussions about them.

Most MPs have criticised the previous elections for giving the right to white card holders to vote, saying it encroaches upon the national sovereignty.

Thailand: Lebanese-Swedish man jailed for 2 years 8 months for illegal possessing bomb materials

13794885854312-640x390x2

BANGKOK, Sept 18 – A Lebanese-Swedish man was sentenced to two years and eight months jail by Thailand’s Criminal Court today for illegally possessing bomb-making substances found in a warehouse in Bangkok’s suburban province of Samut Sakhon.

The court found Atris Hussein, 49, guilty but ruled that there was insufficient evidence to link him with the Hezbollah militants as charged by the Thai authorities.

Hussein was arrested early last year after the authorities raided a warehouse he rented, seizing more than 2,800 kilogrammes of liquid ammonium nitrate and other materials that could be used to produce explosives.

The court found him guilty but reduced the four-year jail term to two years and eight months thanks to his useful testimony.(MCOT online news)

“Decentralization to states and regions within current constitutional restraints,” reads State and Region Governments in Myanmar, a collaboration between The Asia Foundation and the Myanmar Development Resource Institute’s Center for Economic and Social Development (MDRI-CESD), “cannot provide the degree of political autonomy, security, or share of national wealth that the non-state armed groups in conflict or ceasefire with the government desire in order to agree sustainable peace agreements.”
