Who' s the Myanmar Premier?
In Myanmar, the position of Prime Minister was terminated in 2011. Being Thein was the last prime minister of Myanmar. Meanwhile, the position of Prime Minister has been superseded by that of Myanmar State Council, which is said to be the de facto leader of the government. This position was specifically established for Aung San Suu Kyi to give her a greater part in the government.
Burma has the president as mayor. The presidency should be a presidency in which the president is chosen by an election committee and is the mayor. However, Suu Kyi must not become president because her wife and kids are UK citizens. Thus, this obscure position was established for her to give her more and more authority while her marionette pendant was appointed President of the Bulk.
Myanmar: Aung San Suu Kyi will not become president of Myanmar, parliaments confirm | World Gazette
Myanmar's new government has appointed Aung San Suu Kyi as its first democratic president in half a centurys time. Myanmar's election system demands that the president be selected from a list of proposed legislative people. Unsuccessful contestants become VPs. The NLD has also appointed Henry Van Thio, a nominee from Chin's ethnical minorities, to the top chamber of MEPs.
Also two nominees were selected by the former governing Union Solidarity and Development Party: Sai Mauk and Kham. Now the USDP has very little parliamentary representation, and while one of its nominees becomes automatic deputy president, it is not clear what the defeated candidate's stance, if any, will be.
However, it is Htin Kyaw, a top manager with a non-profit organization called after Aung San Suu Kyi's mom, who is tapped as the governing party's favorite to act as a "bank warmer" for her headman. It' s not clear when the closing ballot will take place, but a parliamentary manager said to Reuters that it is scheduled for Monday.
The National League for Democracy (NLD) of Aung San Suu Kyi is able to choose a candidate with a 80% vote in the November elections. Mr Henry Van Thio, who appears to be re-elected as vice-president, said to Burma's Democrat voice: "I did not expect to be appointed for the Chairmanship and I am very pleased with the announcement.
While the NLD president is excluded by constitution because her children are Britons, she has sworn to govern from "above" - preferably until she can convince the army to change the deed. Discussions on amending or terminating the provision blocking Aung San Suu Kyi have so far been inconclusive.
Politicians' intent to govern by proxies has a legal precedent in Sonia Gandhi, India's head of political parties, who dominated the administration of Premier Mahmohan Singh before she lost control in 2014.
