The proposal that the government should lead peace move through negotiation with leaders of EAOs submitted to the regular session of Union Parliament on September 3 was rejected.
The move came from the regular session of the Union Parliament held in Nay Pyi Taw on September 5. The proposal was submitted to the Union Parliament on September, but it was not accepted at the parliament. For that reason, it was submitted to the parliament again on September 5. This issue is not the business of the parliament and it goes against the law. It was consequently rejected.
The proposal was submitted to the parliament by Lower House MP Nan Kham Aye representing Namtu Township Constituency.
“The urgent proposal was submitted to the Union Parliament on September 3. This is because ethnic armed organizations (EAO) especially NCA signatories being in clashes with Northern Alliance. The clashes have started not now, but they are happening for long. The clashes have become more intense. If the clash breaks out, no one comes. Responsible persons don’t come to see the residents. If the clash breaks out, the people have to flee. The people go to monasteries for taking shelter. For these reasons, the urgent proposal was submitted to the parliament on September 3, but in vain. It was submitted to the parliament once more on September 5, but it was rejected. The parliament replied that peace move is walking on NCA road,” said Lower House MP Nan Kham Aye.
Internal armed conflicts are tarnishing the future image of the country, making the people lack security. Clashes between NCA signatories and non-NCA signatories are increasing these days, resulting in lives, properties and freedom. The leaders of EAOs should seek peace solution with the leadership of the government. For that reason, the urgent proposal was submitted to the parliament.
