Suu Kyi power is exactly how much
Suu Kyi, the most popular politician in Myanmar, and who led the National League for Democracy (NLD) landslide in the country’s national election in 2015. The cabinet and his team took the most important decision. Suu Kyi is also in charge of the Foreign Minister.
The country’s constitution was drafted during the previous military government. This military government was ruling in power since 1962. This constitution was approved in 2008 by an incredible referendum. At that time the Suu Kyi or her party NLD did not have any support in this constitutional amendment.
Its main purpose was to make the plan of the declared ‘development chain democracy’ declared by the army. Under this amendment to the Constitution, a quarter of the seats are kept under the control of the army. The army has continued to control the three ministries including home, defense and border. This means that the army has control over the country’s police.
Among the 11 seats in the strong National Defense and Security Council, there are also six nominated members of the army. The council has the power to cancel the democratic government.
Many Buddhist beliefs of Rakhine, they will eventually become a minority. Even their identity may become extinct, they are also afraid. Rakhine Nationalist Party ANP has the majority in the local legislative assembly. Police also have strong sympathy for Buddhists. Nearly half of the police officers of Rakhine Buddhists
But the army with the real power of the Rakhine state of the northern border with Bangladesh. Access to this state is very limited and regulated.
Chief of the army’s powerful army General Min Aung Holding made it clear that he does not have any sympathy for the Rohingyas.
What is the position of the media?
He said the ongoing clearance operation is being run to end a problem before 1942. During that time, the war between the Japanese and British forces ended after the bitter communal conflict between Rohingya and Rakhine Buddhists.
The army has said that Rakhine is currently fighting against terrorist activities under external funding. With the view of the army, Rakhine’s view of most people is similar. It is believed that the ‘Four Cutts’ technique used in conflict areas is being applied.
Through this strategy, the army destroys any community supporting the rebels. But in this case, the media also act as a factor. Myanmar has had some major changes in the past five years. In this, the dramatic growth of new independent media, mobile phones and the internet has happened. This development has taken place in a country that probably was a decade ago.
But what is happening inside Bangladesh or what the Rohingyas suffer few media shows. Most of the media of Myanmar gave importance to the Buddhists and the displacement of Hindus in Rakhine. Those numbers are few. Social media has the huge popularity to spread hatred and misleading information very quickly.
So, the interests of the Rakhine state have little power. And speaking of support to the Rohingyas, it is certain that Buddhist nationalists will be in the face of danger and persecution. (Collapsed).
