Network Media Group, 16/01/2019
The Karenni National Progressive Party (KNPP) and the Burmese government’s Peace Commission held an informal meeting in Chiang Mai, Thailand on Tuesday. The meeting was held to discuss issues leaving the two sides in deadlock regarding the possibility of the KNPP signing Burma’s Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA) with the government and military. “Our KNPP discussed two points. The first one is what has happened in KNPP-controlled areas in 2018. The second one is that we have issues on which we are deadlocked,” KNPP spokesperson Nei Neh Plo told NMG. “We discussed how the government could compromise with us and move the process forward.” A Peace Commission delegation led by the retired Lt-Gen Khin Zaw Oo, and a KNPP delegation led by vice chairman Khu Oo Reh attended the meeting, which lasted around three hours.

Confederation the Only Option for Arakanese People, AA Chief Says
The Irrawaddy, 11/01/2019
YANGON—The political objective of the Arakan Army (AA), an Arakanese ethnic armed group currently clashing with the Myanmar Army, is to obtain confederate status for Rakhine State, AA chief Major-General Tun Myat Naing told The Irrawaddy. “We prefer [a confederation of states] like Wa State, which has a larger share of power in line with the Constitution,” said Maj-Gen Tun Myat Naing, referring to the status of the AA’s ally, the United Wa State Army (UWSA), adding that a confederation is “better” than federalism. “In a confederation, we have the authority to make decisions on our own. But there would be a common defense system. And there would be cooperation on market regulation and foreign affairs. To have control over our own destiny—self-determination—is the aspiration of every ethnic group. We can try,” he said. Resource-rich Rakhine State is home to a ...

Government Approves Seizure of Over 950,000 Acres of Unused Land
Myanmar Times, 24/01/2019
The government has approved the seizure of more than 950,000 acres of unused vacant, fallow and virgin land that had been leased to private entities for agriculture, breeding and mining, a senior agriculture official said on Wednesday. U Myo Tint Tun, deputy permanent secretary of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation, said when these lands were leased, it was stipulated that they should be put to use within four years. “Some have been left without improvements for more than four years, while some have been left unused for about ten years. That’s why we’re seizing this land,” he said. Some leases were revoked as the businessmen failed to make use of the land, while others were voluntarily returned by the lessees. A Nay Pyi Taw livestock owner, however, said that most of the leased land was in remote places, and while the leases were cheap, businessm...

UN Calls for 'Rapid and Unimpeded' Aid Access to Myanmar's Rakhine
Reuters, 15/01/2019
YANGON—The United Nations called on the Myanmar government on Monday to allow “rapid and unimpeded” humanitarian access to Rakhine State, where fighting between government troops and autonomy-seeking rebels has displaced thousands of people. The Rakhine State government issued a notice last week blocking non-governmental organizations and UN agencies from travelling to rural areas in five townships in the northern and central parts of the state affected by the conflict. The International Committee of the Red Cross and UN World Food Programme were exempted from the ban, it said. Fighting has forced about 5,000 people to flee from their homes and take shelter in monasteries and communal areas across the region since early January, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. “We are seriously concerned about new restrictions on humanitarian a...

The Global New Light of Myanmar, 29/01/2019
The Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (bicameral legislature) on Tuesday approved an urgent proposal to amend the controversial 2008 constitution, despite all military MPs voting against it. U Aung Kyi Nyunt, a member of the Amyotha Hluttaw (Upper House) Bill Committee submitted the urgent proposal on behalf of the ruling National League for Democracy (NLD). He explained that the proposal is to form a committee within parliament to “carry out the process of amending the constitution.” Before Pyidaungsu Hluttaw Speaker U T Khun Myat made a decision on the proposal, Brigadier General Maung Maung, a senior military MP, stood up and insisted that the process of submitting the proposal violated parliamentary procedure. "MPs should know in advance about the proposal," he said, adding that they do not know anything about the nature of the committee being proposed and its powers. Brig Gen Ma...

The Global New Light of Myanmar, 17/01/2019
President U Win Myint attended the meeting with officials from the executive, legislative, and judiciary pillars of Kayah State held in Loikaw Township yesterday morning. The President said everyone in a department must work hand-in-hand to bring about successful change. He added we must shed our old habits to instill change in the nation and the people. We need to gauge how much we have changed ourselves when implementing changes, as we can only change other people when we succeed in changing ourselves. Therefore, the heads of departments needed to guide and amend change in spirit and habits of the staff under their care. Change was neither worrying nor fearful. Everyone needed to actively participate with their own thoughts and reasoning, said the President. The Judiciary pillar was an important pillar for democracy, and only when this pillar can work in a right way with legal no...
