Myanmar’s ousted democratic leaders rescind Constitution.

Myanmar’s ousted Democratic leaders said that they were rescinding the nation’s 2008 constitution that gives significant power to the armed forces.


The Parliament of the Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (CRPH), announced on Wednesday that the Constitution would be invalid from 31st March.


It is still not clear if this move will have any effect on the ground after the 1st February military takeover of Myanmar.


CRPH is an underground cabinet founded by members of the party (NLD) of ousted civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi.


The constitution brought an end to the military dictatorship that has been there for almost 50 years.


As it was introduced by the army and changes to it are not possible without the consent of the armed forces.


Suu Kyi was never able to become President but led the country as a de facto leader (State Counsellor).


Many people burned the constitution on the streets as a protest and celebrated the CRPH announcement.


Aung San Suu Kyi was arrested and has been under house arrest since then.
The Army has violently cracked down on the protesters.


More than 536 people have been killed by the army since the coup. This is according to the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners (AAPP).
