The fifth parliamentary session will resume on May 18 and the process of approving bills will be emphasised. Pyithu Hluttaw Bill Committee chair U Tun Tun Hein said that these are bills which have yet to be finished. “So we will prioritise them as soon as the next parliament session resumes,” he told reporters after the National League for Democracy’s central executive committee meeting on May 6 at Nay Pyi Taw Sipin Guesthouse.
