Coup plotters promise new elections in Myanmar

The military, which staged a coup d’etat, promised to organize new elections in Myanmar.

After that, power will be handed over to the new government. The elections should take place after the lifting of the state of emergency, which was imposed for a year. In addition, the military promised to deal with the fraud in the last parliamentary elections.

It is for this reason, the military of Myanmar declared a one-year state of emergency in the country. Vice President Myint Swe was appointed interim president.

Before that, it became known about the detention of Myanmar President Win Myint and the head of the ruling party “National League for Democracy” (NLD) Aung San Suu Kyi, who serves as state councilor and head of the Foreign Ministry. The NLD said that the military was in the process of organizing a coup d’état. In the capital, Nay Pyi Taw, telephone and Internet services are unavailable. The military has been spotted in major cities.
