Pyithu Hluttaw


Pyithu Hluttaw
   (People's Assembly)
   The unicameral national legislature, defined as the "highest organ of state power" in the political system established by the Constitution of 1974. Its members were popularly elected for terms of four years, though this could be shortened or extended. In the General Election of May 27, 1990, candidates ran for seats in the People's Assembly (485 seats were contested out of a total of 492), but the legislature was never allowed to form a government.
