State and Regional Hluttaws

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Myanmar (also known as Burma) is divided into twenty-one administrative subdivisions, which include seven states (ပြည်နယ်; pyi ne, IPA: [pjìnɛ̀]), seven regions (တိုင်းဒေသကြီး; taing detha gyi, IPA: [táiɴ dèθa̰ dʑí]), six self-administered zones and one self-administered division (Wa Self-Administered Division). The regions were called divisions prior to August 2010.[1]

Each State and Region has a State Hluttaw or Regional Hluttaw made up of elected civilian members and representatives of the Armed Forces. The Constitution of Myanmar grants the Myanmar Armed Forces' Commander-in-Chief the right to appoint military officials to 1/3 of parliament seats, based on the number of elected MPs. The number of seats in each State or Region Hluttaw depends on the number of townships (each township constituency has 2 MPs), as well as ethnic representatives. The largest Hluttaws are the Shan State and Yangon Region Hluttaws, with 143 and 123 seats respectively, while the smallest are the Kayah State and Kayin State Hluttaws, which have 20 and 22 respectively.

The current Hlutttaws were elected in the Myanmar general election on 8 November 2015 and were first convened on 8 February 2016.
