The steering committee of the ruling National League for Democracy (NLD) party in Myanmar has called for the release “as soon as possible” of the leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, the party leader, Win Myint, and other representatives.
And through a statement posted on the official page of the party’s representative in “Facebook”, he also demanded the immediate recognition of the results of the legislative elections that took place last year, which were won by the “National League for Democracy”, and the start of the new parliament’s work as planned.
The Myanmar army seized power in a coup against the government of Aung San Suu Kyi, which was arrested along with other senior officials in the raids during the early hours of Monday morning, and announced the appointment of the army chief, Min Aung Helangen, as interim president.
Aung San Suu Kyi called on the people to reject and protest the military coup.
The coup sparked criticism and condemnation in a number of countries and international organizations, while other countries confined themselves to calling for the parties in Myanmar to show restraint and resolve differences by peaceful means.
