Myanmar's Suu Kyi is unlikely to play a official part in the new administration
She' will be leading the political group, so she will be leading the administration that this group forms," Zaw Myint Maung said in the NLD' s most detailled comments on how Suu Kyi intends to exercise control. Suu Kyi's part has been compared to that of Sonia Gandhi, the Italian-born wife of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, by other NLD leaders, among them Win Htein, her pledge.
Dominating the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's administration as Congress chair before falling out of office in 2014, she did not hold a ministry post. The NLD leadership has mocked the NLD as" ridiculous", and Suu Kyi has promised to lead the nation through a deputy. The NLD-led Htin Kyaw, a dear acquaintance and confidante of Suu Kyi, was voted into the NLD-led legislature last weekend, making him the first chief of state since the 60s who is not a servant or recently pensioned high-ranking army official.
Ahead of the November survey, Suu Kyi made it clear that she wanted to run the administration, regardless of whether she was chairwoman, but that the settlement with Sonia Gandhi was "not quite" correct. Myanmar's Constitutional Charter prohibits members of the Myanmar administration from participating in the party's affairs and says that if they are members of a political group, "they may not participate in the party's affairs during their period of office".
Mr Zaw Myint Maung's comments seemed to run counter to speculations by some government officials and indigenous journalists that Suu Kyi was ready to become Secretary of State, a post that would give her a place on the country's Defence and Peace Councils. Htin Kyaw delivered his first official address since his election on Monday, promising employment protection for civil service officials, while MEPs reduced the number of government departments by about a third to 21.
Said the reform would cut Myanmar more than $4 million, and these cuts would be used for health care, literacy and country-building. "There' s no need to cause joblessness if the administration staff work in accordance with the applicable legislation, policies and regulations," he said. The majority of members of the armed forces, who occupy a fourth of the parliamentary seat, also approved the changes, according to the results.
Your cooperation is an enhancement in parliament," said Aung Hlaing Win, a lower-LLD legislator. The way the military, which sees itself as the constitutional custodian, will react to Suu Kyi's attempt to take over the presidency, will remain to be seen. It states that the country's presidents take priority over all other people.
