Myanmar ruling National League for Democracy (NLD) leader Aung San Suu Kyi and other senior leaders of the party arrested by Myanmar’s military. An NLD spokesperson said this on Monday.
News agencies Reuters and BBC Online reported this information.
Another senior NLD leader, including Aung San Suu Kyi, was arrested this morning a party spokesman said.
Today’s incident comes after some days of intense tensions between the civilian government and the military in the country. A military coup is expected in the country.
In last November’s elections in Myanmar, the NLD won enough seats to form a government. But the army made allegations of election fraud. Tensions were running high between the two sides.
NLD spokesman Mio Nint told Reuters by phone that party leader Aung San Suu Kyi, President Win Mint and other party leaders had been arrested and picked a car up early in the morning.
“I urge our people not to act hastily,” he said. I am telling them to abide by the law. ‘
NLD spokesman Mio Nayant himself has expressed fears of arrest.
An NLD lawmaker, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Han Thar Mint, a member of the party’s central executive committee, had also been arrested.
Reuters has sought to know the statement of the country’s army in this regard. However, no response was received from the army.
Witnesses said they saw army members patrolling the streets of the capital, Nay Pyi Taw and the capital, Yangon.
The country was due to convene a new parliament today in the wake of the November elections. But the army demanded the adjournment of the session.
A Facebook post on the country’s state television said they were unable to broadcast due to technical problems.
The military junta was in power in Myanmar until 2011. Suu Kyi was under house arrest for many years during the military’s rule.
