Aung San Suu Kyi loyaltyist replaces Myanmar's ill president: spokesperson for government coalition group
Heti Kyaw's bureau said he was withdrawing "to recover from his present obligations and responsibilities". Aung Shin, NLD spokesperson, said Win Myint, a Suu Kyi loyaltyist who acted as the lower house's spokesperson, would probably take his place. Myint has a firm hold on MEPs and his opponents reproach him for smothering the democracy debates, even within the faction of Suu Kyi's governing National League for Democracy (NLD).
"He has been loyally a member of the NLD since the founding of the party," said Aung Shin, who praised Win Myint's appearance as lower chamber spokesman and said that "he has worked very well with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi throughout this time. Aung San Suu Kyi is known for holding her maps near her breast and only operates with a very tight group of trustworthy Acolyth.
In addition, with reference to sensitive resources, it has been said in a report in the regional press that Win Myint has been appointed the next Mayor. Researchers said the move was enforced by 71-year-old Htin Kyaw's worsening medical condition and had nothing to do with the crises triggered by the violent bombing that drove tens of millions of Rohingya Muslims into neighbouring Bangladesh.
Speculations about Htin Kyaw's disease have spread in recent month about his fast and apparent losing it. In accordance with the country's constitutional system, the higher of two vice-presidents will serve as chairman until a new head is appointed by a parliamentary term within seven working day. Meanwhile, Myint Swe, who has been appointed vice-president by the army, will be the current chairman.
He is the Prime Minister of Myanmar and has extensive constitutional authority. Htin Kyaw's part was more solemn, however, as Suu Kyi has been Myanmar's de facto ruler since April 2016. Formerly prepared by the former regime, a bill expels Nobel Peace Prize winner Suu Kyi from top positions, and she chose Htin Kyaw, a strong associate of hers, as her successor after a landmark landmine in 2015.
Yangon officials say that the Aung Hlaing administration's relations with Suu Kyi are characterised by distrust and a shortage of regular, open communications, showing a real threat to even the smallest changes in the management team. MYYINT SWED is a pensioned general who led the dreaded army secret service under former secret service secret service leader Than SWE.
In 2007, when Than Shwe ordered a suppression of the anti-junta protest lead by Buddhist friars known as the Saffron Revolution, Myint Swe was the leader of the Yangon specialized missions.
