Myanmar's opposition party, the National League for Democracy (NLD) on Saturday urged to amend the country's 2008 Constitution.

The NLD-formed Constitution Amendment Committee said in an announcement that constitution amendments is necessary as rule of law, internal peace and genuine democracy building are depending upon it.

The committee found out that the present constitution includes provisions which are not in line with democracy standard and which harm the free and fair 2015 General Election.

The committee and ethnic political parties recently held discussions regarding whether to support amendments to the 2008 Constitution or call for a new constitution to replace it, but the solution has not resulted yet, the announcement said.

The announcement came after holding NLD's Silver Jubilee Anniversary on Friday which was attended by senior politicians, ethnic representatives, 88-Generation Students Group's representatives and some foreign diplomats.

Aung San Suu Kyi, leader of NLD, made the call at the ceremony that the country has not yet become a fully democratic nation where people can live peacefully with prosperity.

She held that NLD will strive for achieving the main purposes smoothly through national reconciliation and non-violence ways.

NLD, established in late September 1988 after the previous military take-over, regained legal party registration on Jan. 5, 2012 following Aung San Suu Kyi's final release from house restriction on Nov. 13, 2010.

In the April 1, 2012 by-elections, NLD overwhelmingly won 43 out of 45 open parliamentary seats, of which 37, including Suu Kyi, with the House of Representatives (Lower House), 4 with the House of Nationalities (Upper House) and 2 with the region or state parliament.

Aung San Suu Kyi was named chairperson of the Committee for Rule of Law and Tranquillity of the House of Representatives on Aug. 7, 2012.
