You want a comeback to the army regime?
Former governing and 12 other political groups have sparked controversies by aiming for a session of a mighty, militarily dominant body authorised by the Constitutional Treaty to lead the state in an emergencies situation. It was a contentious and threatening trend last week: the call by the former governing Union Solidarity and Democracy and 12 other political groups for the administration to convene a session of the mighty National Defence and Security Council to debate the crisis in Rakhine State and the north-eastern Shan State.
Claiming in a November 28 declaration that a conference of the National Security Council was necessary because the crisis had called into question the territory autonomy of the state. It' s hardly a mystery that the governing National League for Democracy and an vast majority of the population do not like the 2008 constitution, which stipulates that the army holds 25 per cent of the Hluttav offices and a minority on the 11-member New Democratic Party (NDSC).
Article 417 of the Constitutional Treaty provides that the President shall call a session of the NDA and order a federal state of exception if the Union is faced with a possible breakdown or destruction of power over the State. There are five high-ranking soldiers and six civilian members of the Nazi party, among them President U Htin Kyaw and Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, in her role as Secretary of State.
The civil coalition, however, comprises the vice-presidents, one of whom is appointed by the army, so that the army receives an actual majoritys. During a state of crisis, the National-Democratic Service has the power of law, execution and justice. When the 13 political groups called for a conference of the National Diversity Council, why did they make their declaration?
Would the Tatmadaw probably try to get back on the scene? A NDSC summit is necessary, the 13 said, because the NDSC is faced with a crises in the Rakhine region and the struggles in the north-eastern Shan state. In their declaration it was said that the state of the country's territory was at risk because of the Rakhine war.
At Shan, the battles between the Tatmadaw and the Kachin Independence Army, the Ta'ang National Liberation Army, the Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army and the Arakan Army have led to extinction and extermination and disrupted trading with China. In Rakhine north, military operations began after early October when Islamic fighters assaulted border police and killed nine commanders and confiscated weapons and shells.
Mr President, Bangladesh is to be commended for its reaction to the Rakhine area. She has not meddled in Myanmar's business and has worked together well neighborly. They have surrendered fighters and pledged never to use their territories as a basis for attack against Myanmar.
Bangladesh will help the Tatmadaw to re-establish a peaceful and secure environment in the North. The KIA and its North Brotherhood coalition partners in north-eastern Shan said they had started their raids in the Muse and Kutkai districts to highlight the Tatmadaw's recent "pressure".
While the Tatmadaw were suffering losses, there was no movement of the Northern Brotherhood to conquer cities or communities. Tatmadaw is fulfilling its responsibilities to re-establish order and justice in the affected area. Burma is not in jeopardy or on the verge of it. Councillor Aung San Suu Kyi and Tatmadaw's Commander-in-Chief Min Aung Hlaing sometimes come together when called for.
Ministries of defense, interior and borders, all of whom are members of the armed forces and the National Duty Service, are heard in cabinett sittings. Part 213 (a) of the Bill of Rights states that the President has the right to take strategic measures in the case of an attack on Myanmar in consultation with the National Security Service.
It' within the president's competence to convene a NDSC session. There will be no attacks on Myanmar and the NDSC members of the NDSC as well as high-ranking Tatmadaw members are following and debating the country's state. USDP is the establishment of army rulers.
The USDP administration, consisting of former general leaders headed by President U Thein Sein and formed by former East German former East German leader Senior General Than Shwe, took office in 2011 under the conditions of the military's 2008 constitution. With the NLD's 2015 land slide, the USDP and most of the other 12 signatories to the declaration suffered a degrading setback.
Is it possible that the USDP-led group, with its criticism of the NLD government's approach to the Rakhine and Northeast Shan crisis and its call for an NDSC rendezvous with MP? Can they turn back the story and bring Myanmar back into power?
