ဆႏၵခံယူပြဲတြင္ ႏိုင္ငံတကာႀကီးၾကပ္ခြင့္ေပးေရး NLDေတာင္းဆို

လာမဲ့ ေမလ ၁၀ ရက္မွာ စစ္အစိုးရက က်င္းပမယ္လို႔ ေၾကညာထားတဲ့ လူထုဆႏၵခံယူပြဲမွာ ျပည္သူေတြ အတြက္ စိုးရိမ္မႈကင္းၿပီး လြတ္လပ္ တရားမွ်တဖို႔အတြက္ ကုလသမဂၢအပါအဝင္ ေစာင့္ၾကည့္ ႀကီးၾကပ္ႏိုင္တဲ့ ႏိုင္ငံတကာက လြတ္လပ္တဲ့ အဖြဲ႕အစည္းေတြ ျမန္မာႏိုင္ငံတြင္း လာေရာက္ခြင့္ျပဳဖို႔ အမ်ိဳးသားဒီမိုကေရစီ အဖြဲ႕ခ်ဳပ္ NLD က ဧၿပီ ၁၀ရက္ ဒီကေန႔မွာ အထူးေၾကညာခ်က္ ထုတ္ျပန္ ေတာင္းဆိုလိုက္ပါတယ္။

အာဏာပိုင္ေတြက ေရးဆြဲထားတဲ့ ဖြဲ႕စည္းပံု အေျခခံဥပေဒမူၾကမ္း (၂၀၀၈)ကို ဆႏၵခံယူပြဲမွာ အတည္ျပဳႏိုင္ေရး အတြက္ သက္ဆိုင္ရာ အာဏာပိုင္ေတြနဲ႔ အာဏာပိုင္ေတြက ေက်ာေထာက္ေနာက္ခံျပဳထားတဲ့ အဖြဲ႕အစည္းေတြ အေနနဲ႔ လြတ္လပ္ခြင့္ေတြ ရေနေပမဲ့ အန္အယ္လ္ဒီအဖြဲ႕ဝင္ေတြ၊ စာနယ္ဇင္းေတြကိုေတာ့ ေဝဖန္ေထာက္ ျပခြင့္၊ ေဆြးေႏြးေျပာဆိုခြင့္ မရတဲ့အျပင္ ၿခိမ္းေျခာက္ ေႏွာင့္ယွက္တာေတြ ရွိေနတဲ့အတြက္ ဆႏၵခံယူပြဲအတြက္ တရားမွ်တမႈ နဲ႔ ယံုၾကည္ အားထားႏိုင္တဲ့ အေျခအေနမ်ိဳးမဟုတ္ဘူးလို႔ ေၾကညာခ်က္မွာ ေဖာ္ျပထားပါတယ္။

ဆႏၵခံယူပြဲအတြက္ အာဏာပိုင္အဖြဲ႕အစည္းေတြနဲ႔ ေက်ာေထာက္ေနာက္ခံေပးထားတဲ့ အဖြဲ႕ေတြကိုေတာ့ လက္ကမ္းစာေစာင္ျဖန္႔တာ၊ ေၾကညာခ်က္ထုတ္တာေတြကို ခြင့္ျပဳထားေပမဲ့ အန္အယ္လ္ဒီအဖြဲ႕ခ်ဳပ္က တရားဝင္ စာ႐ြက္စာတမ္းေတြကိုေတာ့ ျဖန္ခ်ိခြင့္ မျပဳတဲ့အျပင္ သိမ္းဆည္းဖို႔ႀကိဳးစားတာ၊ ၿမိဳ႕နယ္စည္း အဖြဲ႕ဝင္ေတြကို ေခၚယူစစ္ေဆးေမးျမန္းတာ၊ ဖမ္းဆီးခ်ဳပ္ေႏွာင္တာေတြ လူမသိေအာင္ ေခ်ာင္းေျမာင္း ႐ိုက္ေနတာေတြ ျပဳလုပ္ေနတယ္လို႔လည္း ဒီေၾကညာခ်က္မွာ ေဖာ္ျပထားပါတယ္။

အာဏာပိုင္ေတြအေနနဲ႔ ေရဒီယို၊ ႐ုပ္ျမင္သံၾကားနဲ႔ သတင္းစာေတြကေန ပံုစံအမ်ိဳးမ်ိဳးနဲ႔ ေန႔စဥ္ဝါဒျဖန္႔ေနေပမဲ့ ပုဂၢိလက စာနယ္ဇင္းေတြကိုေတာ့ လြတ္လပ္ခြင့္ေပး၊ ေရးသားခြင့္မရွိဘူးလို႔လည္း ေၾကညာခ်က္က ဆိုပါတယ္။

အခ်က္ ၅ ခ်က္ပါ အန္အယ္ဒီရဲ့ အထူးေၾကညာခ်က္ထဲက အခ်က္တခ်ိဳ႕ကို အန္အယ္ဒီပါတီ သတင္းျပန္ၾကားေရးအဖြဲ႕ အဖြဲ႕ဝင္ ဦးသိန္းညြန္႔က အခုလို ဖတ္ျပပါတယ္။

ဦးသိန္းညြန္႔။ ။ “တိုင္းရင္းသား လူမ်ိဳးစုမ်ား အပါအဝင္ ျပည္သူလူထုက စိုးရိမ္ ေၾကာက္လန္႔မႈကင္းစြာျဖင့္ ဆႏၵမဲ ေပးႏိုင္ေရးႏွင့္ ႏိုင္ငံတကာ အသိုင္းအဝိုင္းက ယံုၾကည္ေလးစားမႈ ရရွိေရးတို႔အတြက္ ကုလသမဂၢ အပါအဝင္ ႏိုင္ငံတကာမွ ေလ့လာ ေစာင့္ၾကည့္သည့္အဖြဲ႕မ်ားကို ခြင့္ျပဳရန္ အထူးလိုအပ္ေၾကာင္း ေၾကညာလိုက္သည္။”

ဒီအထူးေၾကညာခ်က္ဟာ ဧၿပီလ ၉ ရက္ ေန႔က က်င္းပတဲ့ NLD ဗဟိုအလုပ္အမႈေဆာင္အဖြဲ႕ရဲ့ အစည္းအေဝး ဆံုးျဖတ္ခ်က္အရ ေၾကညာတာလို႔လည္းသိရပါတယ္။

ဒီေၾကညာခ်က္နဲ႔ ပတ္သက္ၿပီး ဦးသိန္းညြန္႔ကို RFAက ဦးေက်ာ္မင္းထြန္းက ဆက္သြယ္ ေမးျမန္းထားပါတယ္။

* ဦးသိန္းညြန္႔ႏွင့္ ဆက္သြယ္ေမးျမန္းခ်က္။
* အသံဖိုင္ရယူရန္

ျမန္မာႏိုင္ငံတြင္ ေမလ ၁၀ရက္ေန႔၌ က်င္းပမည္ဟု စစ္အစိုးရက ေၾကညာထားေသာ ဖြဲ႕စည္းပံု အေျခခံဥပေဒ ဆႏၵခံယူပြဲ က်င္းပမည့္ ပံုစံကို ဧၿပီ ၁၀ရက္ေန႔က သ႐ုပ္ျပစဥ္ မဲပံုးအလြတ္တခုကို အရာရွိက ျပသေနပံု ျဖစ္ပါသည္။
