Burma needs a third government for 2020
Voters' hopes were not fulfilled by the results of the historical November 2015 elections. Disgruntled by the bad work of the NLD (National League for Democracy) and its non-democratic form of government, the call for an alternate third country for the next general elections is increasing to stop the military-backed Union Solidarity and Development Part ( "USDP") from regaining office.
Myanmar's burgeoning voter policy, which came into being at the end of 2010 after half a hundred years of two successive army regimes, has only been ruled by two political factions at the domestic stage. NLD experienced a landslide win in the 2015 elections, the first free and equitable ballot in 25 years. She filled the most of the offices in both buildings and could readily constitute the new administration.
But when it comes to politics or to being the leader of the state, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi has the say. Myanmar's citizens placed a great deal of trust in the National Liberation Front when they were elected. Municipal elite, intellectual and the growing upper classes all shared the belief that the National Liberation Front would make genuine changes to end decade-long militarist domination and initiate a new, open, democracy-based politics game.
With a new management, the local economies should be improved and state institutes should modernize the state. There is a sense today among those who are prepared for politics that voters' aspirations have not been fulfilled. NLD rules by doing business with the army, while it is numb to demands for a move from a choir of democratically elected representatives.
Now many of the 88 Generation students' group leader who campaigned for democratization alongside the NLD in 1988 are feeling left behind by their former cohabite. Indeed, the heads of civic organizations (CSOs) have been complaining that the room for civic organizations will become smaller under the new administration.
A number of civil servants regard the CSO as a troublemaker because they think that these organizations make constructive noises about what the demonstrators see as crucial topics. Myanmar's economies are also heavily affected by the NLD's confused policies, which in turn has created significant levels of insecurity among domestic and international invest. In the opinion of many financiers, the capacity of the three main banks - the Central Bank, the Ministry of Commerce and the Ministry of Planning and Finances - is not high.
The NLD-run government's external policies have so far been a success, but their sustainability is not known. In view of the present election conditions, the creation of a third country-wide candidate is necessary for two main factors. Firstly, the democratic-authoritarian divide is deeply embedded in Myanmar's civic civilization and is encouraging some constituents to join the USDP, whose simplified nationalistic and inward speaking language adresses them.
The NLD's non-democratic character, however, annoys all elite politicians, intelligentsia and the upper classes. "Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's reluctance to assign powers, the excessively centralized organization of the Greens and the lack of willingness of Nazi leadership to hear the opinions of expertly educated individuals have resulted in a dead end that hinders democratization and economical advancement.
The electorate deserves an alternate vote in the next elections in 2020, and perhaps a third side would be better able to round out the NLD committee. Secondly, the nature of the executive democracy that Myanmar practises is the system of control and balance between three columns. Newspaper reports have said that young NLD legislators have been cautioned by their older counterparts to stop asking difficult issues and making suggestions that make the NLD look poor.
Strengthening democracy requires a third political group that can act as a powerful parliamentary opponent and give way to a real division between the legislature and the government. Because of the NLD's antidemocratic character and the USDP's tendency to authoritarianism, the only way to put democracy in a position where the only way is to establish a third partie.
In order to prevent a repetition of the NLD's errors, however, a third person should consider the following proposals. Firstly, the political group should be large enough to advertise nationally. During the last electoral round, more than 90 political groups joined the Union's electoral commission, but unfortunately most of them were local and national.
Therefore, the third side must make sure that it is not another small and ignored one. Secondly, the new policy should be integrated and concise. Myanmar's factions have revolved more around a leadership or a group of leadership without clear policy stances.
In order to disrupt this convention, a third country should set out its policy convictions and principals in a document. It is important that the nascent faction should be built on the basis of common policy convictions and an idea - a gradual calendar. Issues and the policy for solving them should be the centre of attention, not the issue of who will be the leader(s).
Partisans come and go, but the manifesto stays. Thirdly, it is important to build a powerful, dynamic, democratic political organisation. It should be organised in a decentralized and democratically managed way. It is not just one individual or group of political parties that should be involved in the decision-making game.
Otherwise the "all-rounder" will autocratically monitor the political group. Outside specialists should be sought on issues where the parties lack knowledge. Common members must have the right to make suggestions and ask important issues and should be urged to criticize partisan politics and its leaders. To put it briefly, the creation of a decentralized, democratized political group is as important as the victory in the poll.
There' s a misunderstanding in Myanmar that policy is a play that is only toyed with by former detainees, students militants and old-fashioned leaders because they have gained a lot of exposure and have offered them so much by being detained for so many years. It is more important to cultivate a range of policy capabilities, such as knowing the major themes facing the state, grasping the world' s policies, the capacity to interact with the world' s population, and other things that foster participative democracies.
Therefore, a third person must provide an enviroment that is appealing to young workers, the intellectual and young politicians. The third promises to bring democracy back to live by establishing control and equilibrium against the NLD and the USDP. It' s important that a third side has a forward-looking view founded on clearly formulated policy convictions and ideology.
They must build powerful democracies and recruit a new breed of leaders to serve the nation; in a word, a "government for the people" is needed. A graduate in politics from Northern Illinois University, where he also worked for the Center for Burma Studies.
