The military regime in Myanmar has disbanded the National League for Democracy (NLD), the political party of Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi.
The NLD was dissolved on Tuesday, after the military’s seizure of power in February. The military also announced a ban on political activities, which effectively silenced the NLD and its members.
The dissolution of the NLD is the latest move by the military to consolidate its power, following the February coup. The military has used force to silence its opponents, arresting hundreds of people, including Aung San Suu Kyi, who is under house arrest.
The military’s decision to dissolve the NLD comes just days before the country was set to hold its first general election in 20 years. The election, scheduled for November 8th, was expected to be a test of the military’s legitimacy.
The dissolution of the NLD has been met with outrage from the international community. The United Nations Security Council has condemned the decision, and many countries, including the United States and the United Kingdom, have imposed sanctions on Myanmar in response.
The dissolution of the NLD has left many Myanmar citizens feeling powerless and confused. Aung San Suu Kyi, who had been a beacon of hope for the people of Myanmar, is now unable to lead her party and her country.
The future of Myanmar remains uncertain, as the military regime continues to crack down on its opponents. For now, it appears that the military will remain in control for the foreseeable future.
