It’s the fact that NLD is a by-product of student-led pro-democracy movement in 1988. Therefore, NLD should take an extra caution not to antagonize its alliances.
?? Dr Thein Lwin cannot be included in the central executive committee (CEC) of the National League for Democracy (NLD) according to its rules and regulations, said party leader Aung San Suu Kyi on February 3. Dr Thien Lwin, who is a member of the National Network for Education Reform (NNER), violated the rules and regulations of the party by attending the four party talk with the government to reform the National Education Law, NLD announced.
“We are not associated with NNER. It is their choice. According to our rules and regulations, our party member cannot have duties in other organisations because it can lead to conflict. The NLD has already talked with Dr Thein Lwin. If he wants to participate in the NLD and NNER, he cannot be included in the central executive committee. He can participate in the party activities as a party member,” said Suu Kyi.

The opposition National League for Democracy (NLD) denied that Aung San Suu Kyi, the chairperson of the NLD will be appointed speaker of the parliament after the general election. NLD spokesperson Win Myint told The Daily Eleven, the heading expressing “Aung San Suu Kyi will try only the parliamentary speaker position” was posted on the internet page of The Trade Times Journal on January 8.
“The report expressed that if the parliaments fails to amend the 2008 Constitution prior to the 2015 general election, Suu Kyi will likely be appointed as the influential speaker of the parliament in accordance with the provisions prescribed in the Constitution after the election as she is banned from being a president,’’ the NLD’s spokesperson said on January 2.
NLD’s spokesperson Win Myint denied talking to The Trade Times about the report. He asked who the NLD’s spokesperson who talked to the Trade Times. The name must be mentioned. Now is the time we are trying to make constitutional amendment. No decision has been made. According to Win Myint, Monywa Aung Shin who is a member of the information committee of the NLD also denied talking about the report. “We don’t know whether he is telling the truth,” Win Myint said. We don’t have enough time to make constitutional amendment. But if Suu Kyi has an opportunity of becoming the parliament speaker she will be satisfied, Aung Shin was quoted during the interview with the Trade Times. CR. ELEVEN MEDIA
“Regarding the news coverage of the Trade Times, the expression is wrong. The Trade Times made wrong interpretation. This matter is not a problem and we can deal with it. The Trade Times questioned me about the constitutional amendment after 2015 election. I replied that Suu Kyi had difficulty in becoming the president if the constitutional amendment is made after the election, that the Tatmadaw could not amend the Section 436 and 59 (f), that Suu Kyi would keep on trying to become president and she would try to win the 2015 general election,” Aung Shin said.
“While I was being interviewed, Ye Tun of White Tiger party was also present. The Trade Times interviewed Ye Tun as well. I think our two interviews caused the journal to misunderstand,” Aung Shin said. “I am not the spokesperson nor close to Suu Kyi. I am a member of information committee of the NLD,” Aung Shin said.

Maj. Kyaw Swar Win signing a petition in favor of amending Burma’s Constitution,
Maj. Kyaw Swar Win has been in military custody since early April after he was photographed signing what appears to be a pro-amendment petition circulated by the National League for Democracy (NLD) party.
Yangon (dpa) – A military officer was sentenced to two years in prison for signing a petition calling for an end to the military grip on the constitution drafted by the former regime, local media reported Saturday.
A military court in central Mandalay region sentenced Army Major Kyaw Swar Win for violating regulations that bar military men from supporting political campaigns, he told reporters in front of the Obo prison.
He was arrested in April after a photo showing that he had signed the petition was spreading on social media, especially Facebook.
“It’s unfair to send a person in prison for supporting charter change as this man Kyaw Swar Win is a citizen even though he serves the country as a soldiers,” said Win Tin, a former army chief and now a leader of the opposition National League for Democracy (NLD).
More than 5 million people joined the signature campaign organized by the NLD and the Peace and Open Society headed by student leaders of 1988 uprising. They are demanding changes to the constitutional article that gives an effective veto to the military.
Amendments can only occur with the support of more than 75 per cent of the legislature. The constitution allocates 25 per cent of the seats for military personnel who are appointed without election.
