Speaker of Amyotha Hluttaw Mahn Win Khaing Than’s concluding remarks

In his concluding remarks, Speaker of Amyotha Hluttaw Mahn Win Khaing Than said in a democracy, the minority follows the decision of the majority, and the majority respects the will of the minority. A democracy prefers welfares of others to own interest, and it also protects human rights. Good characteristics of democracy value human rights in practicing righteousness, freedom and fairness.

Moreover, democracy is people-centered, and it defines that sovereignty of the state is collectively owned by people; the administration is based on the decision of people who elected the government; the strength of legislative bodies could strengthen democracy.

He also remarked that efficiency of the Hluttaw could lead to democracy, and the country is required to march towards the democratic goal through united strength and common desire.

The Speaker also said Myanmar started to organize the International Democracy Day in 2011, and this was a significant year as it coincided with the 130th anniversary of Inter-Parliamentary Union. This year’s theme was ‘Participation’ that calls on all-inclusiveness of public by establishing democratic institutions.

In accordance with the slogan of the Hluttaw ‘People’s Voice, Hluttaw Voice; People’s Will, Hluttaw’s Will; People’s Expectation, Hluttaw Implementation’, Hluttaw representatives were advised to fulfill the needs of the people. The State Counsellor was quoted in his speech as sayings to focus what one can give, rather than what one can receive.
