Mizzima - Offices of the Rangoon Division Police and the Rangoon Division Peace and Development Council (PDC) have been ordered to move to the Peoples’ Parliament Building on Pyay Road, an officer from the Rangoon Division Police Office said on the condition of anonymity.
However, the legislative office and Rangoon Division Court are not being required to relocate and the Rangoon Division Election Commission will remain open, commented a spokesperson from the Rangoon Division Peace and Development Council.

The Rangoon Division General Administrative Department is currently located on Bank Street in Kyauktada Township. There are hundreds of photocopy shops, printing houses, notary businesses and legal offices on the street to support the work of the department.

Those businesses will encounter difficulties after the relocation of the offices, according to a lawyer from the Rangoon Division Court.

“We heard that the Division Court would not move. But, anyway, the businesses which depended on the offices [that are moving] will face difficulties,” the lawyer said.

The relocation order was originally delivered in July, with efforts now being made to expedite the process ahead of this November’s general election.
