In the general elections held in Myanmar, the party backed by Loktantra and current President Aung Sang Suu Kyi appear to secure a majority. The National League for Democracy (NLD) claimed it had won a majority in the legislative elections and would retain power. However, the Election Commission officially announced the results in just a few seats until Sunday.
Results will be delayed
Myanmar’s Federal Election Commission said earlier that it would take a week for all results to arrive and last night at eight a.m. the names of only nine laureates were announced in the election to the 642-member parliament, all candidates for the NLD. . NLD spokesman Monywa Aung Shin said the party confirmed that it had won more than 322 seats with a majority figure, but that in the end results it would gain more than the 377 seats targeted by the party. .
Suu Kyi to victory in elections despite opposition
It is noteworthy that the victory of the NLD is expected as party leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi is very popular in the country. However, some believe that some reduction in his party’s seats could be due to a deterioration in relations with ethnic minority-based parties, which he supported in 2015.
How is the relationship with India
Myanmar’s supreme leader, Aung Sang Suu Kyi, is considered close to India. He was also educated while staying in Delhi itself. When the military seized power in Myanmar, they had to be held in detention and released. At that time he was indirectly helped by the Indian government. That is why Suu Kyi is more inclined to India. This is why India finalized the Kaladan project agreement with Myanmar. Apart from that, India is also developing a port in Myanmar.
Why China Wants Su Victory
China supported Myanmar’s military alliance in the last election, when this time it wants to openly win the pro-democracy Ang Song Su Ki. Chinese government officials find it difficult to convince a general in military rule. While the leaders of the pro-democracy National League for Democracy (NLD) readily accept his words.
Myanmar’s army is China’s adversary
The Army-aligned Union Solidarity and Development Party lost a lot to the NLD in the 2015 elections. Aung Sang Suu Kyi’s party is also seen winning the NLD in this election. year. Su Ki has been close to China in recent years to steer clear of the Rohingya conflict and for economic gain. As the army there opposes China by giving arms, money and support to the rebels.
This reason behind giving weapons to terrorists
China wants Myanmar to approve several projects for its belt and road project. For that, to put pressure on the government of Myanmar, they are giving arms to these terrorist groups. While Myanmar continues to deny any involvement. Not only that, China is also encouraging Indian terrorist groups to attack Kashmir.
Chinese missiles found near terrorists in raid
According to the Myanmar military, the foreign country is behind the Arakan Army rebel group. Since 2019, this terrorist organization has been attacking the Myanmar army with weapons and landmines made in China. In November 2019, the Burmese army seized a large number of weapons from the banned leg of the National Liberation Army during a raid. It also included surface-to-air missiles. The missiles discovered during this raid are said to be in the range of US $ 70,000 to $ 90,000. These weapons were made in China.
