NAY PYI TAW – U Htin Kyaw of the National League for Democracy (NLD), led by Aung San Suu Kyi, was sworn in as Myanmar’s new president on Wednesday.
In a ceremony in the parliament, democracy icon and leader of the ruling party Aung San Suu Kyi was sworn in as minister of foreign affairs, education and energy, and will also hold the president’s office portfolio, Xinhua reported.
She was not able to be president because of a constitutional block even though she led her National League for Democracy party (NLD) to a landslide win in general elections last November.
Military-assigned first vice president U Myint Swe and elected second vice president of the NLD U Henry Van Thio were also sworn in to office.Follow @gorkhapost
CCTV cameras lying idle
BETRAWATI— The CCTV cameras installed at main market area and road side of Bidur Municipality in Nuwakot are lying idle.
As many as 25 sets of CCTV which were installed on the initiative of Nuwakot Chamber of Commerce and Industry are now dysfunctional.
The cameras were set up at the cost of Rs 3.5 million. The concerned side has not paid any attention to repair the cameras in the public which were helpful in maintaining security in the areas.
Right now almost all the CCTVs installed in the public places are not in functioning condition, said Basanta Kunwar, Superintendant of Police.
The cameras were installed a year ago in collaboration among the Nuwakot District Development Committee, Bidur Municipality, different banks and financial institutions.Follow @gorkhapost
