Myanmar Committee of parliamentarians announces acting ministers

The parliament members elected to the Myanmar parliament in the Nov. 8 elections last year have announced a list of acting ministers for the country. Calling the military overthrow of the government headed by State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi as unjust and illegitimate, Committee Representing the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (CRPH), consisting of the elected representatives who are opposed to the military government, on Tuesday came out with a list of four ‘acting union ministers’. 

The CRPH announced names for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of President’s office, planning, investment and economic relations and labour, immigration and education. 

Earlier, the military government of Myanmar warned the CRPH with legal action. The Chairman of the State Administration Council (SAC) of Myanmar Gen. Min Aung Hlaing said on Monday that the action is being taken against the CRPH which is an illegal body funded from foreign organisations. 

Addressing the meeting of the SAC the head of the military government Gen. Hlaing said that action is being taken against civil servants, physicians, specialists and staff taking part in the Civil Disobedience Movement (CDM).

Hinting at changes in the diplomatic postings, the SAC has decided to reassess the Myanmar diplomats serving internationally. Earlier, the permanent representative of Myanmar at UN had defied the government and declared his support for Aung San Suu Kyi and pro-democracy movement in Myanmar. 

The protests continued in Myanmar on Tuesday. Police fired stun grenades to disperse the protesting crowds in Yangon. Protests were also reported from the northwestern town of Kale where police fired live ammunition to disperse the crowd, reports Reuters. 

At least 21 protestors have been killed since the protests started in Myanmar against the military take over on February 1.
