A military MP on Monday challenged the constitutionality of the Commission for the Assessment of Legal Affairs and Special Cases, a body led by Shwe Mann, the former parliamentary speaker and retired general.
The controversial law, which covers “online defamation”, has been used to silence government critics and the media.
The meeting comes amid growing efforts in Burma to deny the existence of the Rohingya as a distinct ethnic group.
In a post on his Facebook page, Shwe Mann said that the move by the party’s current leadership would not deter him from engaging in active public service.
The new parliament’s lower house on Friday appointed the former lower house and union speaker as the chairperson of the Legal Affairs and Special Issues Assessment Commission.
Suu Kyi met with Shwe Mann to discuss national reconciliation in the wake of her historic election victory earlier this month.
