For all who are interested in the politics of #Burma and for all those who have been left questioning the logic and timing behind this supposed '#coup' - I think we need to first understand that there was no #democracy to begin with
The 2008 Constitution was written by the #Tatmadaw for the #Tatmadaw
1. 25% seats go to military
2. Military retains power in key depts and retains veto
3. Commander in Chief can call State of Emergency at a whim
The idea of the #Burma constitution 2008 was that with the combination of the 25% reserved seats and with the #military proxy party USDP only needing to secure 25% more of the popular vote, the military would always retain 'democratic' control

THREAD: A toxic mix of vanity, ambition & naivety has led to the arrest of #SuuKyi & return to military rule in #Myanmar. The pall of the discarded 1990 election & 20 years of dictatorship now looms large. So is Tatmadaw really seizing power for 1 year only? 1/
At question here is the problem of the 2008 Constitution. The military designed it, and it is now the albatross holding back progress in a range of areas - from the 'peace process' and federalism, to citizenship, Presidential appointments etc 2/
The military wrote 2008 Constitution during dark days of dictatorship; it protects their interests via complete autonomy & 25% military seats in parliament. But to give popular legitimacy it also opened 75% of seats to election- vast bulk which #SuuKyi/NLD won in 2015 & 2020 3/

for everyone who is confused af about the #burma #myanmar #coup - for those who are asking, should we be calling out for #SuuKyi release? but wasnt she the one who defended and oversaw #genocide against #rohingya ? but how come everyone is up in arms about her detention now...
is it the #military or is it #suukyi who is the bad guy here...
I understand and get why you are confused. Let me just say this to clear it up for you - they were in bed together the whole time through.
There has never really been any #democracy in #Myanmar #Burma...
#SuuKyi was just a puppet for the #military. This #coup isnt even really a coup, because according to the #constitution of #Burma the military is legally entitled to do this. So what can the world do I hear you say?...

No lockdown in #Myanmar for now over #COVID19 #coronavirus. But yet ANOTHER committee formed to deal with virus. This time, headed by VP Myint Swe, ex-#Yangon Chief Minister, ex-military general. New committee has 10 members including #defence #homeaffairs #labour #communications
Remember some 2 weeks ago, #Myanmar had formed a national #COVID19 #coronavirus committee led by #AungSanSuuKyi herself when at that time she maintained the nation has no confirmed cases of the virus. Today, the country sees 15 cases with 1 death just reported today (March 31) ImageImageImageImage
So what's the difference between new #COVID19 #coronavirus committee led by #Myanmar #VicePresident Myint Swe & the one headed by defacto leader #AungSanSuuKyi, also looking to tackle the #pandemic? And committee under #VP Myint Swe will report to #SuuKyi or direct to #President? Image
