(@khaans) March 25, 2016. The BBC's Burmese radio programmes are being rebroadcast by Myanmar's state-owned channel, Myanmar Athan, expanding the BBC's presence in Myanmar. From Moe Myint, November 28, 2016. A few terrible footage on tonight's BBC news showing more unrest in Burma.
Myanmar's groundbreaking 2015 election declared
The Aung San Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy has won a landslide in Myanmar after the parliamentary election on 8 November. This does not mean that Myanmar has full democratic power. The Hluttaw (Parliament) did not have all available places. Were we expecting Aung San Suu Kyi's birthday parties to go so well?
The NLD won 392 of the 492 available places in 1990, 52 of them. Surprisingly, the NLD did so in the countryside (where the army had supported the USDP to gain seats) and also in ethnically diverse areas such as Kachin, where populations were expecting smaller identity-based political groups to do well.
What is the procedure for electing the next chairman? Although the parliamentary elections took place in November, it will probably be March 2016 before this happens. First, the Hluttaw is divided into three groups: the electors of the House of Commons, the electors of the House of Lords and the non-electors of the Armed Forces.
Every group proposes one nominee and then the three will be put to a single voting meeting attended by all two chambers' chosen and non-elected members. However, a President Suu Kyi in 2016 would demand an unbelievable turn by the army and will be a long way off.
And if not Suu Kyi, then who? Mr Aung San Suu Kyi did not give much indication that he was a civil member of her group. As Suu Kyi has already said she will stand "above" the presidency, she will probably elect someone who is loyally with her rather than someone with her own visions for Myanmar's own one.
How mighty is the Yankee leader? The Hluttaw as an important politic power was one of the topics of the last five years.
Myanmar: Who' s the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army?
Over 100,000 Rohingya have escaped their homeland since 25 August. Resurrectionists say they are doing business on Myanmar Rohingya's behalf-who are they? Who' s Aresa? Rohingya Salvation Army (Arsa) is operating in the state of Rakhine in the north of Myanmar, where the mostly Moslem Rohingya were persecuted.
Myanmar's authorities have refused their nationality and consider them irregular Bangladeshi migrants. There have been regular conflicts between different ethnical groups, but last year an uprising has been growing. Arsa, formerly known by other aliases as Harakah al-Yaqin, has murdered more than 20 policemen and members of the guard.
She assaulted policemen in Rakhine State on 25 August and killed 12 in her largest ever onslaught. ICG also says that the fighters have been training abroad and published a 2016 account that the group of Rohingya who live in Saudi Arabia was first. Arsa started when?
Arsa has been educating since 2013, the Asia Times spokesperson said. However, their first assault was in October 2016, when they murdered nine policemen. He says his goals are "defense, rescue and protection" of the Rohingya from state oppression "according to the self-defense principle".
And Arsa also refuses the terrorists flag and says it won't assault a civilian. But there are records of him assassinating informants while he' coaching members. ICG says Arsa members are young Rohingya men angry by the state's reaction to fatal unrest in 2012. Harsh antiviolence measures are being taken by the UN police; a February UN document describes the "devastating cruelty" of troops who were struck, violated and murdered in the area after the October 2016 war.
Myanmar's UN report on humanitarian affairs said the extent of the devastation was now "much greater" than last year. Assaults on the police have led to a strike by the army, which claims to be combating them. Over 100,000 Rohingya have escaped their communities and traversed the Bangladesh frontier, where the shelters are full.
Most of them say that the army, supported by Buddhist friars, destroyed communities and murdered civilians. 2. Goverment says Buddhists and Hindus have also escaped the area.
