CNNi: Coup in Myanmar after Aung San Suu Kyi and leaders detained

Myanmar’s powerful military has taken control of the country in a coup and declared a state of emergency, following the detention of Aung San Suu Kyi and other senior government leaders in early morning raids Monday.
The country woke up to widespread internet and communications blackouts, closed banks, and soldiers in army fatigues patrolling the streets of Myanmar’s largest city, Yangon. Residents turning on their television sets could only access the military-owned Myawaddy TV channel, with all other news channels seemingly blocked.
As news filtered through that the country’s democratically-elected leaders had been detained in the capital, a news anchor announced on the military-owned channel that power had been handed over to army chief Min Aung Hlaing.
In the address, the military confirmed it had detained the country’s de facto civilian leader Suu Kyi, along with other high ranking National League for Democracy (NLD) leaders, in response to alleged voting irregularities in November’s election.
Suu Kyi’s party, the NLD claimed an overwhelming victory in that election, taking 83% of the vote, which granted it another five years in government. The military-backed Union Solidarity and Development Party won just 33 out of a possible 476 seats.
The coup came just hours before the first session of the new parliament was set to open, and follows weeks of worsening political tensions in the country over the disputed election amid rumors that the military could take over.

  1. I feel that the only reason she supported the military was to avoid this scenario from happening because from how she acted before it made 0 sense for her to support the military in the situation.

  3. Its such a shame that the other democratic countries ignore completly on myanmar democratic path just because they think that their agenda on rohinja issue cannot carry out. We have over a hundred ethnicities who do not know whar their basic rights are. How can some one who do not have a clear understanding of their basic rights could carry your agenda while we cannot even come to an agreement yet on national reconsiliation with many other ethnics minorities legalley belong to the country. Any how we dont expect anything from international communities and look up to them any more since they abandoned us on our path toward democracy. Shame on you

  5. the military must be under the president . But here the military arrest the president and our leader without any strong evidence . The NLD party won heavily in 2020 election . #Min Aung Hlaing #hang#theif who have stolen millions of money from our country#stop military coup# . We civillian want democracy. Relase our leader and president .

  6. nothing to do with communist bullshit. There is simply a rich elite all over the world including the news anchors in suits telling the stories. We can’t even tell what’s happening in the US so why the fuck would I believe anyone telling me they know what’s going on with Myanmar

  7. Yeah that’s true . I am from Myanmar and also the electricity are not good even internet connections. Military shoots people that are from Aung San su Kyi side because they keep saying Aung San su Kyi and that how much they hate military.

  8. Aung San Suu Kyi received appropriate punishment because when she was in power, she deliberately did not want to take any action to save the cruelty and oppression of the Rohingya community by the Myanmar army. So there is no point for her to be empowered because she is proven to be a person who has never ruled well and also has never been fair to the society in her country especially to the Rohingya community.

  9. MYANMAR (BURMA) COUP (Date: 02/01/2021)

    The WORD of GOD, Romans 13:01 says, “EVERYONE must SUBMIT to Governing AUTHORITIES. For ALL Authority comes from GOD, and those in POSITIONS of AUTHORITY, have been PLACED by GOD”. Amen.

    MYANMAR (Burma) MILITARY RULE (Tatmadaw) first began in 1958, and Direct Military Rule Started, when General Ne Win and Senior General Than Shwe Captured Power from 1962 to 2011, for 49 years. In the year 2011, the Military Junta Dissolved, and The National League for Democracy (NLD), led by Aung San Su Kyi, gained Transitional Government. In February 2021, The Military staged a Coup, and Officially Retook Myanmar. Senior General MIN AUNG HLAING, has taken Charge of MYANMAR, during a Year Long, ‘State of Emergency’.

    The WORD of GOD, John 14: 27 says, “PEACE I leave with you. My PEACE I give to you; Not as The World gives, Do I give to you. Do Not let your Heart be Troubled, Neither let it be Afraid.” Amen.

    MYANMAR HISTORY Cannot Be Changed: Prior to 1948, INDIA & BURMA, have been One Country as a British Colony. General Aung San a Politician and Revolutionary, From 09/26/1946 – To 7/19/1947, led his Party, The Anti-Facist People’s Freedom League, to Victory in The 1947 Burmese General Election. However, he and his Cabinet were Assassinated. General Aung San’s Only Daughter, Aung San Su Kyi was Evacuated from Yangon, Myanmar to London, U.K. where she Grew Up, and became Burma’s State Counselor, from 2011 to 2021 (Myanmar Military Coup).

    Our MYANMAR MILITARY (Tatmadaw) is The Arm Forces, Responsible for Securing and Defending our Myanmar Country: The ARMY, NAVY, MARINES, AIR FORCE and COAST GUARD, are BRANCHES of The MILITARY.

    Our SENIOR GENERAL MIN AUNG HLAING, is CHAIRMAN of The STATE ADMINISTRATION COUNCIL, and COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF, of Myanmar Armed Forces. He has been SPONSORED by SENIOR GENERAL THAN SHWE. Our Myanmar Military Leader, Min Aung Hlaing has an EXCELLENT and IMPRESSIVE HISTORY of Hardworking Accomplishments, and We are very BLESSED, to have his EXCELLENT Education Qualifications and Military Experiences. He is a Man of EXCELLENT and FANTASTIC CALIBER, to LEAD MYANMAR to SAFETY, PEACE & PROSPERITY.


    DAW SU & ASSOCIATES are Under PHYSICAL PROTECTIVE CUSTODY, by The MILITARY, for having REPEATED INSURGENTS’ AMBUSHES & THREATS of ASSASSINATION, like General Aung San. The MILITARY JUNTE has PRESERVED her Life (18 years of House Arrest at her Inya Lake Home), RESTORED DAW SU’S YOUTH & PHYSICAL BEAUTY, at her Age of 76.

    THANKS very much to ALL our PREVIOUS MYANMAR LEADERS & our NEIGHBOR COUNTRIES: India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, Laos, Thailand & Malaysia.

    May GOD be with Each of You & Bless You, Your Families, Friends & Fans.

    “In GOD We Trust”. Amen.
