Analyze: Who' s gonna be Myanmar' s next president?
President U Htin Kyaw's retirement came as no great shock, but ended month-long speculations in Myanmar. Since the end of last year, U Htin Kyaw has received health care in Bangkok and Singapore and his state has not changed. Daw Aung San Suu Kyi was scheduled to resign when he came back from Australia.
From the beginning of this year, de facto leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and some leading National League for Democracy (NLD) leader U Htin Kyaw counselled to prevent periodic state actions. However, in the open, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi euphemised her familiar friend's lack of good-temperature. We' ve got the First lady to take charge of the Mayor.
He is the faithful descendant of a distinguished international author, U Htin Kyaw, who previously acted as advisor to Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and the MP. He was just seen as a marionette chairman. A former school friend of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and a distinguished author, the ill or now former head, has a law degree in business administration and graduated in computer sciences from the University of London.
Although it was a resignation, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and the NLD leadership must have thought it possible long before. In fact, there have been rumours that she and her helpers or mediators have turned to the top of the Armed Forces and other important politicians to reach an agreement. He was considered a gentle-minded gentlemen with few foes when U Htin Kyaw retired for medical reason; the generalaries have no problems with U Htin Kyaw and seem to have respected him.
One top general once said the armed forces had no problems with the US presidential officer because he had never fought the war. Under the Constitution, if the Governor dies while in post or retired, the first incumbent governor and an election must be conducted to appoint a new governor.
It then elects the Chairman from among the three Vice-Presidents. The former General of the armed forces Myint Swe, who is a member of the armed forces fraction, is the current first vice-president. He' going to be the current chairman. He will be nominated by Parliament within seven working day of the country's constitution.
Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, U Win Myint, 67, spokesman for the House of Commons and a member of the NLD who Daw Aung San Suu Kyi confided in, tendered his resignation just after U Htin Kyaw's abrupt departures on the same date, which led to speculations that he would be Myanmar's next chairman. He' s considered one of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi' s favourites among the older NLD members.
Many more are on the shortlist - Dr. Myo Aung, President of the Council of Naypyitaw, Dr. Zaw Myint Maung, Prime Minster of the Mandalay region, and Dr. Aung Moe Nyo, Prime Minster of the Magwe region. A number of able female nominees, ethnical leader and even Ko Min Ko Naing - who is now in his early fifties and was one of the prominent personalities of the 1988 pro-democracy insurgency, but was not a member of the NLD.
He' seen near Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. In February 2016, following the NLD's victory in the 2015 parliamentary elections, he was appointed spokesman for the lower chamber. Its current vice spokesman is U T Khun Myat, an ethnical Kachin and descendant of a celebrity Kachin traditionally reigning Duwa familiy.
A member of the Union Solidarity Development Party, but closely associated with U Shwe Mann, former general, former spokesman and mighty associate of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. At the time he was spokesman for the lower chamber, U Win Myint's relationships with the military were up and down.
Acknowledged as a member of the conservatives and loyals of the political parties, he was seen as a defender of the state and parliament during his tenure. Even more important, she needs someone she can rely on and from whom she can count on total allegiance - like her boyfriend and confidant U Htin Kyaw. Watchers will also observe the army's response to the U Htin Kyaw outbreak.
It will be prudent in this match if they maintain the state of affairs and receive recognition for the transfer and elections of the new presidency. It is unlikely that the gendarmes will swing the ship, but will see Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and the NLD leadership take their next step.
