The Office of the Attorney General of Myanmar (Burmese: ပြည်ထောင်စုရှေ့နေချုပ်ရုံး; abbreviated OAG) serves as the Government of Myanmar's main legal advisory body. The Office is led by the Union Attorney General of Myanmar.[1] The incumbent Attorney General is Htun Htun Oo, who was appointed on 5 April 2016. Also, in 2016, lawyers and activists were pressing for the creation of a Ministry of Justice (which has never existed in Myanmar's history) in order for the government to elect a Chief Justice rather than the President.[2]
