Myanmar’s Constitutional Tribunal finally accepted a case yesterday. It appears this is only the second case it has heard, although I know almost nothing about the first case, which was accepted back on July 2. The second case deals with the minister for national races affairs. The case was brought by the Amyotha Hluttaw speaker. Unfortunately, beyond that The New Light of Myanmar gives few details. Hopefully NLM will also announce the outcomes of these cases.
