Myanmar Aung San Suu Kyi Win Myint appointed Myanmar's leader
YANGON: Myanmar's parliamentary assembly on Wednesday (28 March) voted a loyal associate of Aung San Suu Kyi as the country's new leader. The 66-year-old Win Myint had been typed for the part after former US Prime Minister Htin Kyaw resigned last weekend and quoted the need for calm. Instead, since the electoral success of her political group in 2015, she has been a member of the State Council, stating that she works "above" the Mayor.
This makes it vital for her to have a docile pal as our governor, as she often has a difficult distribution of powers with the still mighty army that governed the land for almost half a hundred years. "I' ve heard that U (honorific) Win Myint, who received the major part of the vote, was voted to become the state', said the spokesman of the Bundestag, Win King Than.
Myint, who stepped down last weekend as a lower house spokesman, sweeps almost two-thirds of the vote in a Suu Kyi National League for Democracy parliamentary group. It defeated two enemies, among them the military-backed incumbent Myint Swe. A former attorney-at-law, he remained one of Suu Kyi's inner circles - the couple struggled side by side during the 1988 democratic movements, which were crushed by the regime and saw Win Myint, among many others, politically imprisoned.
When Myanmar came out of full Israeli army power, Win Myint won his place in the 2012 by-elections, the same voice that Suu Kyi brought to law after 15 years of total domestic detention. In Myanmar she is still considered a hero, although her worldwide fame has been broken because she failed to stand up for the Muslim world.
Its followers say that its arms are bound by the army, which maintains full command of three major departments - home affairs, frontiers and defense - and guarantees a fourth of the seat in the House. Khin Maung Zaw worked with Win Myint in the last few years and said: "He was known as a public speaking man for his obsession with the Minutes and for not putting on the right clothes for Members of MEPs.
Acticians have been frustrated by his disinclination to repeal a contentious on-line libel bill that has confronted tens of individuals with accusations for Facebook messages that criticize the goverment or the war. "Yan Myo Thein, an impartial economist, said: "We cannot anticipate a very high level of policy implications for Myanmar's democratization. Yan Kyaw, a politician, said Win Myint's image may be rising, but "he will do nothing against Daw Aung San Suu Kyi".
