Myanmar Civilian GovernmentBurma Civil Government
Myanmar's transition of powers is over. Aung San Suu Kyi, Nobel Prize winner, won the National League for Democracy (NLD) in November 2015, and on Wednesday, March 30, a new US leader, Htin Kyaw, took official control of the former quasi-civilian administration under former General Thein Sein.
Yet Myanmar's democratic symbol still has the upper hand, and Kyaw is still supposed to act as its "proxy," observe. Now that the new chairman has been swear in, his office will soon convene and rule the state. Zeya Thu, a Myanmar reporter, thinks that people's expectation of the new administration is very high.
The Myanmar scientist Hans-Bernd Zoellner, who recently paid a visit to the South East Asia region, says that the population has no particular expectation of the state. There is nothing special about euroophoria. Thu said that the Kyaw-run regime must first have reformed the whole administrative system. "Administrations need staff who can put their policy into practice," the reporter added.
This gives the feeling that the new administration wants to address the problems and has a clear vision of how to do it. Chancellor Schroeder's office has already taken an affidavit so that they can run the business. "It has been dominating external policy for some considerable amount of development due to its importance internationally," Thu added.
NLD vice-president Tin Oo said on Tuesday 29 March that the new administration would press for important changes within its first 100-day term in power. However, he was not very precise as to what changes the administration would make. In general, it is expected that the whole land will be changed. Aung San Suu Kyi wants to promote democracy in a nation that has been under the rule of the army for centuries in order to bring about upheaval.
"It' s a bottom-up society," he said, and added that transforming the nation's overall civic civilization would be a major challenge.
