Abstract

National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) has issued the order no.10/2016 due to the state policy regarding the reform of educational system. Under the NCPO order no.10/2016, three committees were established which were the committee of the ministry of education for driving educational reform in the region, the Provincial Committee for Education and the Provincial Subcommittee for Education. During the past year, there were several problems regarding the implementation of the NCPO order no.10/2016 which were: (1) the administrative organs exercised discretions illegally in appointing the Provincial Subcommittee for Education provided under section 8 of NCPO. order no. 10/2016 (2) the administrative organs exercised discretions contrary to the objective of NCPO. order no. 38/2016 by extending function of the Provincial Subcommittee for Education who were actually repealed by the new order. Therefore, the discretions made by the administrative organ may not be legally exercised. In order to prevent future problems, the administrative organ should be well exercise its discretion within legal limit. This means that the discretion of the administrative organs should be exercised only by the law legally empowered to it. Also, the state authority in charged with certain duty, should not neglect their own mandatory power or discretionary power and must exercise them freely and appropriately without being strictly constrained by guidelines set by superiors order.
