Future of NLD only be defined after adopting of basic principles on Election Chapter

Yangon October 9

Role of NLD in coming general election would be only defined by adopting of the basic principles of election and political parties registration chapters in National Convention, Vice Chairman of National Convention Convening Commission U Aung Toe said.

Reply to query raised by journalists, U Aung Toe said there were chapters of political parties registration and general election to be discussed by representatives in recent session of National Convention.
"We have studied political parties registration systems among other countries. Some have multi- parties and some have dual party system. We would present outlines of basic principles for those chapters and more than a thousands of delegates would decide which were more suitable for our country" U Aung Toe explained.

He also emphasized that he expected there would be political parties which were entitled to basic principles adopted by delegates.

Interview with BBC Burmese Service Editor U Kyaw Zan Tha

Interview with U Kyaw Zan Tha, Editor of BBC Burmese Service

By Kyaw Hsu Mon

Q: Is it First time you visited Myanmar to cover National Convention ?

A: Yes, I was permitted to cover the resumption of National Convention after I send application to concerned authority. I am so happy to attend here. Especially, our BBC reporting is with fair and balanced manners. We have a chance to know the voices of Myanmar Government because we were here. If not, we can only analyze from outside. Sometimes, we heard more voices from outside than inside.

Q: How do you expect how much you can cover the news of NC?

A: I think I could do much because I could make many interviews. I will report what I see actually rather than relying on information abroad.

Q: How BBC can expect free reporting here?

A: So far I haven't faced any restriction. I am a holder of Myanmar Passport, so it was so convenient for me to cover news here.

Q: Could you tell me your opinion on local press?

A:If you compare with previous several years, I see they are more active now, better hopes for future.

Q: Do you expect press freedom would eventually emerge here?

A: Yes I do. Recent developements I have seen here are the steps for moving forwards.

Thank you U Kyaw Zan Tha.
