NLD to Hold Rare ‘Special Meeting’ this Month

Burma’s main opposition party, the National League for Democracy (NLD), plans to hold a rare special meeting on April 28-29 to discuss what spokesman Han Thar Myint described as “several matters important for the country.”

These matters were likely to include the proposed 2010 general election, Western sanctions against Burma and a proposed review of the newly adopted constitution, Han That Myint told The Irrawaddy on Thursday.

The meeting will be attended by the party executive, those NLD members who were successful in the 1990 election, senior members and representatives of the women’s and youth sections of the party,

“The meeting will be more like an open discussion on several matters important for the country,” Han Thar Myint said.

Invitations to the special meeting were sent out earlier this month by NLD chairman Aung Shwe, who said the executive committee would read “a paper” to participants. Han Thar Myint did not say what the paper would contain.

The NLD, led by democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi, was formed after the 1988 uprising and went on to win more than 80 percent of constituencies in the 1990 general election, the result of which was ignored by the junta.

In its 20 years existence, the NLD has been a frequent target of the regime. Its offices across the country have been frequently closed down, many of its members have been harassed and forced to leave the party.

In those two decades, the NLD has been able to hold only two large-scale meetings, once before the 1990 election and a second in 1997.

An attempt to arrange a meeting in August 1998 of members elected in the 1990 poll failed when the junta arrested several who had planned to take part. Restrictions were also placed on members’ travel.

Since his release from prison in September 2008, prominent NLD leader Win Tin has been trying to reorganize the party, including holding regular executive committee meetings.

No regime reaction to the planned meeting this month has been noted, Han Thar Myint said.

Apart from regime harassment, the NLD has also been targeted by critics of its ageing leadership and lack of reform. All executive committee members, with the exception of Suu Kyi and Khin Maung Swe, are in their eighties.

NLD sources say no reform of the party leadership can be undertaken because of restrictions by the regime.

An NLD decision on whether or not to participate in the 2010 election is still awaited. The party has, however, called for a review of the constitution adopted in 2008, but last month junta leader Snr-Gen Than Shwe rejected the proposal.

The constitution reserves 25 percent of parliamentary seats for military officials and assures the military a leading role in Burma’s politics.

အမ်ဳိးသား ဒီမုိကေရစီ အဖဲြ႔ခ်ဳပ္ ေခါင္းေဆာင္မ်ားႏွင့္ ျပည္နယ္တုိင္း အဆင့္ ကုိယ္စားလွယ္မ်ား၏ အထူး ေဆြးေႏြးပဲြ တခုကုိ လကုန္ပုိင္းတြင္ ျပဳလုပ္ရန္ စီစဥ္ေနရာ တုိင္းျပည္ အတြက္ အေရးႀကီးသည့္ အေၾကာင္း အရာမ်ားကုိ ေဆြးေႏြးၾကမည္ ဟု သိရသည္။

ရန္ကုန္ၿမိဳ႕မွ အမ်ဳိးသား ဒီမုိကေရစီ အဖဲြ႔ခ်ဳပ္ လူငယ္ အဖဲြ႔၀င္မ်ား (ဓာတ္ပုံ – ေအပီ)

ေဆြးေႏြးပဲြတြင္ စီးပြားေရး ပိတ္ဆုိ႔မႈ၊ အေျခခံဥပေဒ ျပန္လည္သုံးသပ္ေရး၊ ၂ဝ၁ဝ ေရြးေကာက္ပဲြ စသည့္ အေၾကာင္းအရာမ်ား ပါဝင္ဖြယ္ရိွသည္ဟု အဖဲြ႔ခ်ဳပ္ ေျပာခြင့္ရ ပုဂၢဳိလ္တဦး ျဖစ္သည့္ ဦးဟံသာျမင့္က ဆုိသည္။

“ႏုိင္ငံအတြက္ အေရးႀကီးတ့ဲ အေၾကာင္းအရာေတြကုိ ပြင့္ပြင့္ လင္းလင္း ေဆြးေႏြးၾကမွာပါ။ အေျခခံ ဥပေဒ ျပန္လည္ သုံးသပ္ဖုိ႔ ဆုိတာလည္း ေဆြးေႏြးမယ့္ အေၾကာင္းအရာ တခု ျဖစ္ပါတယ္။ စီးပြားေရး ပိတ္ဆုိ႔မႈ၊ ၂ဝ၁ဝ ေရြးေကာက္ပဲြ တုိ႔နဲ႔ ပတ္သက္တာေတြလည္း တက္ေရာက္လာသူေတြက ေဆြးေႏြးမယ္ဆုိရင္ ဒီအေၾကာင္းအရာေတြလည္း ပါဝင္လာႏုိင္ပါတယ္” ဟု ဦးဟံသာျမင့္က ဆုိသည္။

ယခုလ ၂၈၊ ၂၉ ရက္တုိ႔တြင္ ျပဳလုပ္မည့္ ေဆြးေႏြး ညိွႏိႈင္းပဲြကုိ ၁၉၉ဝ ေရြးေကာက္ပဲြတြင္ ေရြးခ်ယ္ခံရသူမ်ား၊ ျပည္နယ္ ႏွင့္ တုိင္းမ်ားမွ တာဝန္ခံမ်ား၊ အမ်ဳိးသမီးအဖဲြ႔၊ လူငယ္အဖဲြ႔ ကုိယ္စားလွယ္မ်ားကုိ ဖိတ္ေခၚထားသည္ဟု သိရသည္။

ေဆြးေႏြးပဲြ ဖိတ္ၾကားစာကုိ ယခုလ ၉ ရက္ေန႔ ရက္စဲြျဖင့္ ေအာက္ေျခ အဖဲြ႔ခဲြမ်ားသုိ႔ ျဖန္႔ေဝခ့ဲသည္။ အဖဲြ႔ခ်ဳပ္ ဗဟုိ အလုပ္ အမႈေဆာင္ အဖဲြ႔က ျပဳစုထားသည့္ စာတမ္း တေစာင္ကုိ ေဆြးေႏြးပဲြတြင္ ခ်ျပမည္ဟု ဖိတ္ၾကားစာတြင္ ေဖာ္ျပထားသည္။ အဆုိပါ စာတမ္းတြင္ ပါဝင္သည့္ အေၾကာင္းအရာမ်ားကုိ ဦးဟံသာျမင့္က ထုတ္ေဖာ္ ေျပာၾကားျခင္း မရိွေပ။

ၿပီးခ့ဲသည့္ အႏွစ္ ၂ဝ အတြင္း အဖဲြ႔ခ်ဳပ္သည္ အာဏာပုိင္တုိ႔၏ ဖိႏွိပ္မႈကုိ အဆက္မျပတ္ ခံခ့ဲရသည္။ ႏုိင္ငံအႏံွ႔ရိွ ရုံးခဲြမ်ား အပိတ္ခံခ့ဲရၿပီး အဖဲြ႔ဝင္မ်ားလည္း အဖဲြ႔ခ်ဳပ္မွ ႏုတ္ထြက္ရန္ ဖိအားေပး ခံခ့ဲရသည္။

“၁၉၈၈ က စၿပီးေတာ့ အဖဲြ႔ခ်ဳပ္က အစည္းအေဝးႀကီး ႏွစ္ႀကိမ္ ေခၚယူႏုိင္ခ့ဲပါတယ္။ ၁၉၉ဝ ျပည့္ႏွစ္မွာ ၉ဝ ေရြးေကာက္ပဲြ ဝင္မယ့္ ကုိယ္စားလွယ္ေလာင္းေတြ၊ ေရြးေကာက္ပဲြ ေအာင္ႏုိင္ေရး ေကာ္မတီဝင္ေတြ တက္ေရာက္တ့ဲ အထူး အစည္းအေဝး တရပ္ ျပဳလုပ္ခ့ဲတယ္။ ၁၉၉၇ မွာလည္းပဲ ႏုိင္ငံတဝန္းလုံးမွာ ရိွတ့ဲ ေခါင္းေဆာင္ အဆင့္ဆင့္ ပါဝင္တ့ဲ အစည္းအေဝးႀကီး တခု ေခၚယူႏုိင္ခ့ဲပါတယ္” ဟု ဦးဟံသာျမင့္က ရွင္းျပသည္။

၁၉၉၈ ခုႏွစ္တြင္ အဖဲြ႔ခ်ဳပ္က ျပည္သူ႔ လႊတ္ေတာ္ ကုိယ္စားလွယ္မ်ား ပါဝင္သည့္ အစည္းအေဝးႀကီး တခု ျပဳလုပ္ရန္ ႀကိဳးပမ္းခ့ဲရာ အထမေျမာက္ခ့ဲေပ။ အာဏာပုိင္တုိ႔က အဖဲြ႔ခ်ဳပ္ အဖဲြ႔ဝင္ ရာေပါင္းမ်ားစြာကုိ ဖမ္းဆီး ထိန္းသိမ္းလုိက္ၿပီး၊ တခ်ဳိ႕ကုိ ခရီး သြားလာခြင့္ ကန္႔သတ္လုိက္သည္။

လကုန္ပုိင္းတြင္ ျပဳလုပ္မည့္ ျပည္နယ္ တုိင္း အဆင့္ ကုိယ္စားလွယ္မ်ား တက္ေရာက္မည့္ ေဆြးေႏြးပဲြကုိ ျပင္ဆင္ေနစဥ္ ယခုအခ်ိန္အထိ အာဏာပုိင္မ်ားထံမွ အေရးယူ ေဆာင္ရြက္ခ်က္ တစုံတရာ ျပဳလုပ္ျခင္းကုိ မေတြ႔ရေသးဟု ဦးဟံသာျမင့္က ေျပာသည္။

အကဲခတ္ တခ်ဳိ႕က အဖဲြ႔ခ်ဳပ္ ေခါင္းေဆာင္မ်ား အသက္အရြယ္ အလြန္အမင္း ႀကီးရင့္လာျခင္းကုိ ေထာက္ျပၾကၿပီး၊ အႏွစ္ ၂ဝ အတြင္း ျပဳျပင္ ေျပာင္းလဲမႈ မရိွျခင္းကုိ ေဝဖန္ အျပစ္တင္ေနၾကသည္။ ေဒၚေအာင္ဆန္းစုၾကည္ ႏွင့္ ဦးခင္ေမာင္ေဆြမွလဲြ၍ ဗဟုိ အလုပ္အမႈေဆာင္ အဖဲြ႔တြင္ ပါဝင္သူမ်ားမွာ အသက္ ၈ဝ ဝန္းက်င္မ်ားသာ ျဖစ္သည္။

အဖဲြ႔ခ်ဳပ္ သတင္းရပ္ကြက္မ်ား၏ အဆုိအရ အဖဲြ႔အတြင္း ျပဳျပင္ေျပာင္းလဲမႈ မရိွျခင္းမွာ အာဏာပုိင္တုိ႔၏ ကန္႔သတ္မႈမ်ား၊ ဖိႏွိပ္မႈမ်ားေၾကာင့္ ျဖစ္သည္ဟု ဆုိသည္။

လာမည့္ ေဆြးေႏြးပဲြတြင္ ေရွ႕လုပ္ငန္းစဥ္မ်ား အေၾကာင္း ေျပာဆုိၾကမည္၊ သုိ႔ေသာ္လည္း အဖဲြ႔ အတြင္း ျပဳျပင္ ေျပာင္းလဲေရးႏွင့္ ပတ္သက္သည့္ ေဆြးေႏြးပဲြမဟုတ္ဟု ဦးဟံသာျမင့္က ဆုိသည္။

ဤအေတာအတြင္း အဖဲြ႔ခ်ဳပ္က ၂ဝ၁ဝ ေရြးေကာက္ပဲြတြင္ ပါဝင္ေရးႏွင့္ ပတ္သက္ၿပီး တရားဝင္ ေၾကညာျခင္း မရိွေသးေပ။ ဖဲြ႔စည္းပုံ အေျခခံ ဥပေဒ ျပန္လည္ သုံးသပ္ေရးကုိ ၿပီးခ့ဲသည့္ ႏွစ္က စတင္ၿပီး ေတာင္းဆုိခ့ဲသည္။ စစ္အစုိးရ ေခါင္းေဆာင္ ဗုိလ္ခ်ဳပ္မွဴးႀကီး သန္းေရႊက ၿပီးခ့ဲသည့္လက ျပဳလုပ္သည့္ အခမ္းအနားတခုတြင္ အေျခခံ ဥပေဒ ျပန္လည္ သုံးသပ္ေရးကုိ ျပဳလုပ္မည္ မဟုတ္ေၾကာင္း အဓိပၸာယ္ သက္ေရာက္သည့္ မိန္႔ခြန္းကုိ ေျပာၾကားခ့ဲသည္။

အေျခခံ ဥပေဒ အရ လႊတ္ေတာ္တြင္ တပ္မေတာ္၏ ကုိယ္စားလွယ္ ၂၅ ရာခုိင္ႏႈန္း အလုိ အေလ်ာက္ ပါဝင္ရမည္ ျဖစ္ၿပီး၊ ႏုိင္ငံ၏ ဦးေဆာင္မႈ အပုိင္းတြင္လည္း တပ္မေတာ္က တာဝန္ယူမည္ ျဖစ္သည္။
