Please tell me how Myanmar’s economy will turn out if U Thein Sein takes another term

Dear Sayagyi U Myint,

We had exchanged open letters over an article I wrote in March.

The article I wrote was “Would Myanmar plunge deeper into recession?”

Since you felt dissatisfied with it, you wrote an open letter to me. I replied you in two letters. You then wrote another letter on April 11 over my letter. I have not written anything to you since then.

Are you sure who won an election? (1)

A comment in President Thein Sein’s radio speech on October 6 stood out. He said, in the next parliamentary term, the Constitution would be amended so city and township councils would be elected by the public rather than appointed by the government.

They are wrong (3)

I could not reply to you immediately as I have been busy lately. But I have to continue telling like it is it because it might be assumed that someone who did the wrong things is actually someone who did the right things.

You said, “A news media has to inquire who is being the plot as it has taken interest from the public. If the perpetrator is known, it is a chance to report it in Tomorrow Journal”.

What kind of electoral frauds will come out of incorrect voter list? (2)

There are three important steps that need to be done to prevent electoral frauds and vote rigging.

Laying waste to the whole country?

Recently, a peasant woman committed suicide. The reason was not being able to succeed in tending her farms after they had been flooded. She was depressed.

Like her, countless people were forced to accept their fate after the flood had left their farms buried deep under mud destroying their crops.

Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement will only be regional unless signed by all groups.

The Karen National Union (KNU) and seven other ethnic armed groups decided to sign the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA) on September 29.

The government sent invitation letters to the 15 recognised ethnic armed groups to ink the NCA in October.

The seven out of these 15 groups have agreed to sign; and if the Restoration Council of Shan State/Shan State Army (RCSS/SSA) accepted, it would be eight groups in total.

U Tin Aye and voter lists; let's solely tell about this to President

(1)

The National Unity Party (NUP) has called on the Union Election Commission (UEC) to ensure that the 2015 general election is not dishonorable like the 2010 election. Myanmar had bitter experiences of advance voting in the 1990 and 2010 elections, the NUP pointed out.

The request was made by U Han Shwe, CEC member of NUP during its press conference held on September 24.

Afraid of being sandwiched

Dear Saya U Mya Tun,

It’s nearly 40 days away to hold 2015 Election. At this time, you came into my mind as you have acted as Ahlon Township election Commission Chairman since 2010 and with a good record. Therefore, I am writing this article. I thank you for sharing your experiences when you worked at the Eleven Media Group with us for a long time. It’s been a long time we have seen each other since you retirement due to your weakening eyes.

Dear Saya,

I will tell the real truth (16)

More than a week ago, I wrote that the current Myanmar's economic, political and social agenda were showing signs vis-à-vis national reconciliation of possible backtracking.
