YANGON, Jan. 16 (Xinhua) -- Myanmar's parliament Wednesday revoked a national-convention-related law promulgated by the previous military government, according to the President's Office.

The revoked law was defined as Law Protecting Systematic and Peaceful Transfer of State Duties and Successful Undertaking of National Convention Work from Undermining and Opposition.

The withdrawal of the law came after a new state constitution draft was drawn up in 2007 through the holding of 14-year-long convention and approved through a national referendum in May 2008.

Myanmar's constitutional national convention began in 1993 and concluded on Sept. 3, 2007.

The new state constitution draft was endorsed through the 2008 national referendum and then a general election followed in November 2010, producing an elected civilian government, led by President U Thein Sein.

The new government was sworn in to office on March 30, 2011.
