Burma Myanmar Burma makes way for civil government
YANGON, March 30 - Myanmar's June 30 made way on Wednesday for a new government that ushered in an age of civil government ruled by the same dictatorial leaders who have been isolating the nation for nearly two centuries. Stuffed with pensioned and servant troops, Congress dismantled the Burmese government, the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC), a post-November technicality widely criticised as fraud.
It is seen as a step to lure much needed overseas investments into a land that just over 50 years ago was one of the most prosperous and richest countries in Southeast Asia, the world's largest travel exporters and a large power generator. Than Shwe, with his top leading coalition partners in leading positions in the armed forces and government, has isolated himself from cleansing by hindering the creation of another strong man.
Very few are expecting immediate and immediate reform, whether politically, economically or socially, with the same superiors who are now in retirement and who have power over a 30 per cent of the world' s people living in poor conditions, who are engaged in policy botching and who have destroyed their economies by the use of West-Sanction. Thein Sein did not strike in his maiden speech in the House and blamed the West for "harassing" Myanmar.
The Council pressed for cooperation and acknowledgement of the new government and its legitimacy as a democrat. "Thein Sein said: "Some nations that want socio-economic development among the Myanmar population and the establishment of Myanmar democracies should see beneficial changes and development in the state. "to work with our new government.....
However, the historical transfer of powers after 49 years of immediate armed domination will be sceptically welcomed by the global fellowship and many of Myanmar's valued 50 million individuals, most of whom have been living under a series of violent armed diciplions. The members of the Burmese government maintained outstanding positions as presidents, vice-presidents, parliamentary spokesmen, cabininisters, and district leaders.
They have new minds in their head. Hopefully, we have to have the best," said a pensioned headmaster in Yangon, who refused to be named so that he could be open. Following years of chilly relations with the regime, the world is now hoping to get involved with the new government.
The spotlight will be on westerly penalties, although it is unlikely that the embargo, which many experts believe has failed, will soon be removed. West German government have said they want to see significant changes before they review the penalties, involving the freeing of an estimated 2,100 detainees, but experts say that a sustained tough attitude could estrange the new leaders.
Myanmar's pro-democracy powers hardly ever played a part in the new constellation. The National League for Democracy of Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, who protested by boycotting last year's elections, has no formal part, but will have an important part in any further revision of the penalties. The EU has been seeking pressing discussions with the new government on a greater part for the pro-democracy powers and a conciliation procedure with pre-arranged nationalities.
