It has been over three month since Aung San Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy (NLD) took over. The NLD won the general election last November and won a large national legislative seat. On 30 March, the new government - under President Htin Kyaw - took the lead.
However, Aung San Suu Kyi, who is excluded from the presidential term by the country's constitutional treaty, is de facto regarded as the head of the new government, and she currently occupies the posts of State Councillor, Secretary of State and Presidential Minster. Myanmar, despite its rich natural resources, is still an impoverished land with a large part of the more than 53 million inhabitants of South-East Asia living in extreme poverty. 2.
It also faces tension with the army, which governed the state for almost half a hundred years, and maintains vigilance over the country's safety policies by maintaining the country's main defence, interior and frontier departments. In this context, Myanmar specialists Robert Taylor and Hans-Bernd-Zöllner discuss the successes of the new government so far and the upcoming momenta.
In the first few month of its term of service, what has the government accomplished? Robert Taylor: In the first 100 era, the government was reformed and reformed several time. However, not much has been done politically. Zöllner: "The new government is in a very difficult position and 100 working day are not very much for such a big task" The government has also established many commissions to tackle various issues, but specific results have not yet been attained.
There is still discussion of publishing an EC plan and organising a second Panglong meeting to bring lasting calm to the state. Will the new government carry out the necessary reform only slowly? Government is not sluggish in comparison to the great challenge ahead. Aung San Suu Kyi is supposed to do what her dad couldn't do because he was murdered before the country's independence.
" This is what the public expects from their government: This new government is in a very difficult position and 100 working hours are not very much for such a big work. And the government says it wants to re-invent the land and transform our societies. And the first major effort for the government will be the Second Panglong Summit.
"The second installment of Panglion " deals with the decisive question of PE. That'?s what they do to re-invent the land. Robert-taylor: This is one of the government's issues. I am concerned, among other things, that this is a meeting trying to build goodwill between more than 20 people, each with their own agenda, interests and nationalities.
Do you think the most important topic for Myanmar is the peacemaking proces? Robert Taylor: You say that two working day is not enough to get an understanding. Robert-taylor: This is the most important part of this meeting and a token act could be what many will be satisfied with.
The policies of the National Liberation Front and especially of Aung San Suu Kyi in the old times were a symbolism, as many constraints were imposed on her and the National Liberation Front by the war. As for the National Democratic People' s Republic, are there any arrangements within the National Democratic and Reformist parties for the period after Aung San Suu Kyi, who is currently 71 years old?
Robert-taylor: Aung San Suu Kyi is no longer the head of the group. This is a huge scourge and a major source of insecurity for Myanmar's serenity. Robert Taylor is one of the country's premier Myanmar policy specialists. Mr Zöllner has written a major report on Aung San Suu Kyi and the Myanmar Forces.
Aung San Suu Kyi's last German-language release was a biographical account of Aung San Suu Kyi.
