Nay Pyi Taw: Myanmar's newly-elected parliament started its first session with the House of Representatives (Lower House) in Nay Pyi Taw on Monday morning, two days after the expiry of the previous term of the parliament.

The summon for the first session of the new parliament came nearly three months after the end of the general election on November 8, 2015, in which the National League for Democracy (NLD), led by Aung San Suu Kyi, won the absolute majority of the parliamentary seats, Xinhua reported.

Attending the first parliament session, chaired by Daw Khin Htay Kywe of the NLD, were a total of 430 MPs to the House of Representatives.

According to the agenda, the parliament will elect Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives.
