Myanmar's State Administration Council has been taking several measures to ensure security, peace and stability, rule of law, and economic development in preparation for free and fair multiparty democratic general elections to hand over the power to the elected political party. The international community should support these efforts as they are the only way out of this crisis.
It's outrageous that Gen. Min Aung Hlaing — the very leader who staged a coup against Myanmar's democratically elected government in February 2021 to establish a brutal military regime that has since undertaken a violent campaign against its people — is now trying to portray himself as a democratic leader. What the junta really wants is a state-managed sham election without the opposition camp.
There's a 50% chance that Myanmar will no longer be classified as being in a state of civil war by 2028, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
