Nay Pyi Taw Council Chairman clarifies salient points in People’s Military Service Law

A talk concerning People’s Mil­itary Service Law took place in the compound of Nay Pyi Taw Council Office yesterday morning.


At the talk, Chairman of Nay Pyi Taw Council U Than Tun Oo highlighted some fabri­cated news and misinformation items spread on the media with attempts to undermine peace and stability of the region and cause a panic among the peo­ple. According to the law, those learning education, those look­ing after old parents, State ser­vice personnel and those receiv­ing medical treatment among the eligible age of adults for serving the military service will be temporarily suspended for serving, and those inappropri­ate for serving military service will not be recruited. Current­ly, there is no plan to recruit women for military services, according to the press release. The first priority for initiating the aspiration of the people to forge the genuine, disciplined democratic system is peace and stability of the nation. As such, the government is implement­ing the five-point roadmap and nine objectives, he added.
