NAY PYI TAW, May 24 (Xinhua) -- Both houses of Myanmar's parliament have approved without objection a bill revoking the Law to Safeguard the State against the Dangers of Those Desiring to Cause Subversive Acts which was enacted over four decades ago.

Speaker of the House of Representatives (Lower House) U Win Myint announced on Tuesday that since agreed by both houses without amendment, the Union Parliament is to honor the adoption in accordance with the constitution.

The bill was first submitted to the Lower House for debate earlier this month and then transferred to the House of Nationalities (Upper House).

Both houses agreed to withdraw the law, which was enacted in 1975 to allows declaration of state of emergency for any territory in the country and restriction of any citizens' fundamental rights.
