Aung San Suu Kyi's historic US trip to Myanmar Minority Issue Looms
Myanmar State Councillor Aung San Suu Kyi visits the United States just a few day after former United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan visits her home to reduce tension between the Buddhist and Islamic population. Right-wing groups call on the Myanmar leaders to do more to alleviate the misery of the 1 million or more Rohingya Muslims who are not recognised as an officially minorities.
Myanmar's next president elected by Aung San Suu Kyi's party
Burma's long-time opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi apologised to her followers on Thursday for not becoming the country's next woman to become its next woman to become a close confidante, an un-elected red tapewoman. "This has been taken as a call for perseverance and a pledge that she will finally become ours.
NLD won an impressive number of parliamentary elections in November. However, a provision in the militarily drafted bill is preventing Aung San Suu Kyi from taking the nation's top position because her children are citizens of other states. She' s the right one. Following the publication of her epistle, the NLD-controlled lower chamber elected Htin Kyaw as vice-president.
Aung San Suu Kyi's confidant is Htin Kyaw. Also under NLD control, the Lordship elected Henry Van Hti Yu of Chin State as a candidate for the office of Deputy-Presidency. Htin Kyaw will be a good election for the presidency, although he is not well known, said new NLD legislator Zin Mar Aung.
It found that the candidate was spending part of his bureaucratic careers in two departments. Non-elected legislators from the armed forces, for whom a quarter of the legislature's headquarters are reserved, gathered outside the legislature to choose their candidate for the office of vice-president. In all, five vice-presidential contenders will be selected before a review phase, which will bring the number of nominations down to three.
On March 18, the whole House is scheduled to take a decision on which of the three shortlists will be the next country's chairman. And the other two will be VPs. VOA has been informed by Nazi parties that NLD legislators will be ordered to elect Htin Kyaw as chairman, a step that would make sure he is chosen.
This almost makes sure that Htin Kyaw is called a marionette chairman, a characterisation that some NLD legislators consider inevitable because of the unconstitutional restrictions that prevent the stunning popular favourite from becoming the offical guide. "This is the best way forward in such a situation," said legislator Zin Mar Aung.
In recent months, concluded discussions between Aung San Suu Kyi and the army had given rise to speculations that both sides could agree on the suspension of the constitution provision, which excludes her from the chair. However, there is now talk of Aung San Suu Kyi requesting her appointment as Secretary of State.
