Myanmar's new president wants to change military-written treaty
Myanmar's new president pledged to address the country's militarily drafted constitutional, corrupt and humanitarian issues in his maiden address on Friday, and to challenge a draft bill banning Aung San Suu Kyi from power and giving great power to the army. A 66-year-old former convict and reliable Suu Kyi associate, Win Myint was voted president on Wednesday after his forerunner Htin Kyaw retired.
The new President-elect Win Myint said in his inauguration speech that he would monitor and monitor the staff of the administration and ministries and also put the judiciary and legislative in order. It is important that we step up work to protect people. The new president said: "We must implement farmer livelihood improvement programs, make it possible for working people to live a happy lifestyle and give them the right to school.
Aung San Suu Kyi, the Nobel Peace Prize winner who defended Myanmar's rise from Burma's regime through extensive election in 2015, is excluded from the constitutional chair because she was legally unable to hold the office because she was wedded to a non-Jew. In order to avoid this catch, her political group established a new stance for her so-called State Council - it allowed Suu Kyi to reign "over" the president.
Speaking to the House for the first time, the notorious Win Myint said he would concentrate on the constitutional state, the nation's conciliation and the "constitutional change to create a federation of democracy". These three themes are testaments to Suu Kyi's NLD (National League for Democracy) group. However, the chatter about Myanmar's 2008 constitutional changes is likely to be rejected by Myanmar's still mighty general.
He also said he would work for the "protection of fundamental rights", a sensitive issue in a UN nation charged with racial cleanup against its Muslim community in Rohingya. One of Suu Kyi's inner circles, Win Myint joined forces during the 1988 democratic protest against the then-UNTA, a violent repression group.
Win Myint was politically captured for his part. Aung San Suu Kyi remains a pro-democracy hero in Myanmar, even though her international standing has been tarnished because she did not stand up for the country's Rohingya Muslims.
