(February 5, 2021) Myanmar coup sparks Asean concern

Myanmar's military coup on Monday is a matter of great concern to both the country itself and to Southeast Asia as a region. Following the Nov 8 general election, the coup appears to be an attempt to reverse the landslide victory of the National League for Democracy (NLD) party in both the Upper and Lower Houses of Parliament. The suspension of Myanmar's democratic institutions could prove a serious setback for the country's brave transition to democracy and political liberalisation less than a decade ago.

Political differences that may have occasioned the current state of emergency, which is slated to last for one year, can be managed and resolved through constructive dialogue and other lawful means without the use of force. It is regrettable that so soon after the people of Myanmar had fulfilled their constitutional obligation in an election that the democratic process has been nullified in ways that have disregarded the democratic institutions available to challenge the results of the election.
