By Dr. S.Chandrasekharan
 
Though formal results have not been announced, it looks by all accounts that Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy (NLD) has swept the polls with over 399 seats in the National Legislature ( Pyidangsu Hluttaw).  The Army backed proxy, the USDP is said to have had the worst defeat in the years with hardly 21 seats this time from 45 in the last election.

Myanmar- Suu Kyi at The Hague:

Paper No. 6522               Dated 12- Dec-2019

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

It turned out that the State Councilor Suu Kyi did not take any Army Representative in her team to the Hague to defend Myanmar’s case in the ICJ despite speculations to the contrary and the Army’s open desire to be included in the team. Perhaps, she wanted to give the impression that she has acted on her own and  not at the insistence of the Army.

Myanmar: Suu Kyi leading the delegation to ICJ- Implications

Paper No. 6518                      Dated 30-Nov-2019

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

It all began with Gambia on behalf of the OIC filed a Law suit at the United Nation’s International Court of Justice (ICJ) accusing Myanmar of breaching the 1948 Un Genocide Convention through a military campaign in Rakhine State. The ICJ with great alacrity took up the issue immediately and fixed December 12th for detailed hearing in the case!

Myanmar: Government’s Peace Offensive with Arakan Army:

Paper No. 6412    Dated  17-Mar-2019

By S. Chandrasekharan.

In the midst of intensive and heavy fighting between Myanmar Army( Tatmadaw) and the Arakan Army, Suu Kyi’s Government is making efforts in tandem to secure peace and stability in Rakhine Province. But one cannot fight with one hand and try to shake hands with the other.  Thia is what is happening in Rakhine State in a new front  that has opened in the West in Myanmar.

Myanmar-International Pressure and Consequent China’s Gains:

Paper No. 6436                      Dated  7-Oct-2018
By Dr. S.Chandrasekharan
 
Of late, the media in Myanmar is full of articles of possible Coup, failure of the Government,  the international pressure on the Rohingya Issue and consequent bad relations between the Tatmadaw and the Civilian Government. The inference being made out is that if the Government does not act, the possibility of a coup cannot be ruled out! 
 

Myanmar Under Siege: Give Suu Kyi some Respite!

Paper No. 6426 .    Dated 16-Sept-2018

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan

The Myanmar Government appears to be coming under a siege mainly by the international organizations and some western countries. If their idea is to throw Myanmar back into the arms of the Chinese, they are perhaps already succeeding.  Even if the Government and the people want to get out of the stranglehold of China, the mission of these agencies is to ensure that it does not happen.
