Current Political Status of MyanmarMyanmar's current political status
Topical women's issues in Myanmar's parliament
After the 2015 parliamentary elections, Myanmar is in a phase of democratization. For Myanmar it was an historical time to have a popular leadership after several centuries of rule. It is one of the things that has prevented them from participating in policy and gaining grass-roots opportunities.
There are other obstacles for the practice of working with a woman, such as financial dependence on spouse, reduced portability and safety, the balance between housework and local concerns, and the absence of assistance from members of the families and communities. As regards the involvement of trafficked persons in Myanmar's social and economic development, the involvement of trafficked persons in Myanmar's social and economic development is still low.
There is a particular lack of females in the official governmental system, both nationally and sub-nationally, and in the decision-making and management of many ethnical groups. But after the 2015 parliamentary elections, there will be more female than members of parliament, prime minister, state and regional minister and minister for ethnical affair. At the 2015 parliamentary elections, a total of 151 female members were voted for as Minister for Religious and Ethnical Issues and in the Union Assembly as well as in the state and regional governments.
Female representatives are about 13. The number of female deputies is about 12. 5 per cent (81 out of 851) of all members of the state and regional parliaments. Five female secretaries for ethnical matters are chosen, representing 17 female members. 2 percent of all electing state or regional government officials for ethnical issues (5 out of 29).
The NLD-run administration took over in April 2016 as a consequence of the 2015 election, and the Myanmar people's expectation of the new civil administration was very high to transform policy, the business world and welfare living. However, in the current policy environment, it is still hard to make progress and fulfil their wish.
Since Myanmar has long been ruled under Israeli and Palestinian leadership, most peoples do not really appreciate the distinction between the powers and functions of Myanmar's policymakers. Under these circumstances, the ability of Members is very important to reinforce Parliament (legislative institution). MEPs have no clear idea of the particular roles of the lawmaking and lawmaking bodies and have difficulties working with them.
Cooperation between the authorities and parliamentary commissions is lacking. Here too, there is no clear role for ministers and representatives in the region and in the state assembly. Much of them have a dearth of sex consciousness, so sometimes MP face females sex specific discriminations. There is therefore a certain amount of time lag and barrier in the reforms due to the absence of clarity in the rules and procedures in this area.
At the same time, due to a poor grasp of topical policy issues, a poor grasp of the MEP's rôle, a poor parliamentary bureau, shortcomings in Parliament's assistance service, most MEPs were unable to play their roles efficiently. They are therefore still defending themselves against the reforms out of their own interest and without the necessary willingness.
In one of the women's exchanges workshop, female representatives from the region and the Landtag debated some of their experience of sex equality in plenary and in the law enforcement bodies, such as disrespect and esteem, failure to empower and promote, refusal of their proposal, discriminations due to the fact that they are female MEPs and young, neglect of their points of contention at the meetings because all these men are behind the men, although their skills are equal.
After their debate, the votes of female parliamentarians are still ignored, while they ask questions and make proposals. It is necessary to increase the country's commitment to improving the involvement of womens in policy-making in political groups and parliament.
The adoption of rates or other legal framework conditions to promote the involvement of mothers can be unwieldy and take extraordinary amounts of extraordinarily long and resource fulfilling. To counter the absence of female involvement in politics, a law on reserved parliamentary positions for womens must be supported. At the same token, however, it is important for politicians to devise gender-sensitive policies and orientations to raise the involvement of womens leaders and candidates.
We should also be conscious of the commitment of Parliament to accept the governments household and to provide more funds for sexes. MEPs, both men and men, mentors and supporters who stand for a position, will also be able to use their input to continuously bring women's affairs and sex matters up in dialog.
MEPs should also try to create a women's group and support the involvement of girls in the press in order to create a favourable picture of female leaders. A multifaceted capacity-building program for female parliamentarians and prospective applicants is also important, while ensuring co-ordination and co-operation between professionals, co-operating organisations and research institutes.
They could all develop the coalition and the networking to enhance their performance on the issue of sex and other affairs in parliament and their constituencies. MEPs must motivate young girls to apply for a position and work with them to motivate them to take up positions of responsibility at work.
Members must work with young girls to get them interested in public services at an early stage.
