The Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (CRPH) issued the 1385 Myanmar’s New Year Message on April 17, committing its efforts to put an end to the military dictators’ barbaric violence as soon as possible.

“We, the people’s representatives, who were elected by the common will of the people, are taking part in the revolution in various efforts from the parliamentary sector both domestically and internationally, and we pledge to continue to work together with the National Unity Government and the revolutionary forces to end the inhumane violence of the military dictators as soon as possible and to create a peaceful future for the people of Myanmar,” stated the CRPH.

I often think about those children who will be left as orphans in the post-revolutionary period. It makes my plan to establish an orphanage and nursing home long before the revolution more clear and stronger. I was inspired as if I had been tapped with a whip after witnessing the people’s reliance on and belief in the NUG.”
