After 53 years of reigning in the army, Htin Kyaw (69) was the first civil (non-military) Myanmar citizen to be inaugurated. Myanmar's army had been in office since 1962. Aside from him, Myint Swe and NLD member Henry Van Thio were inaugurated as the country's first deputy chairman and second deputy chairman along with 18 cabinetmins.
Aung San Suu Kyi, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and chairwoman of the NLD, who holds a large parliamentary seat, was swear in as Minister for International Affairs. She is a closely associated and advisor to Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi. On March 15, 2016, he was the first civil president of the state through Myanmar's parliament.
Although the NLD has a parliamentary majoritarian party, Aung San Suu Kyi was unable to become president because the NLD drew up the 2008 draft of the 2008 draft constitutional treaty. Myanmar's parliament voted Htin Kyaw (69) the country's first civil (non-military) president after 53 years of MP.
A National League for Democracy (NLD) nominee, he was selected after receiving 360 of the 652 ballots cast. You will be the first vice-president and second vice-president of the state. She is a key contributor and advisor to Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, the NLD National Democratic and Reformist leadership, which has a parliamentary clout.
Thein Sein will succeed him as President, who will resign at the end of March 2016, i.e. after five years of army-backed reign. Under Myanmar's 2008 constitutional charter, the president is chosen in a complicated system in which the two houses of the parliament appoint two nominees for president and the members of the armed forces appoint a third nomination, which gives the armed forces further power.
It will also retain 25% of parliamentary seat in the Convention, giving it an efficient right of appeal against amendments to the Convention. In addition, it maintains three important ministries in the field of domestic safety, namely defense, interior and border issues. The NLD won a major triumph in both chambers of government in November 2015.
NLD chair Aung San Suu Kyi, however, was expelled from office because a 2008 constitutional provision states that anyone whose child is a national of another state cannot become the President.
