Ever Since Myanmar gained independence from British Colonial rule in 1948, Myanmar has been victim to corrupt and poor leaders who let human rights, poverty, and fair rule diminish. In the 2020 elections held in Myanmar, the NLD or the National League for Democracy won the election by a majority of 78% over the Pro-Military USDP party. Though the people support much of the NLD, the military would still have meaningful political occupancy holding 25% of the seats. Despite the win, Myanmar’s State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi was denied the role of president and would be put under house arrest after the military coup in a clear attempt to silence her and other officials. The Myanmar military rule started on February 1st, 2021. This was caused because the military suspected major election fraud in the 2020 election even though the military has not yet found substantial evidence to prove a fair election.
As a member of NATO, and holding strong diplomatic relations with members of the EU, we are making it our mission for Albania to take a stance and help resolve the civil conflict between the Military of Myanmar and the people. Albania will make sure these government officials are recognized and punished for their war crimes, suppression of the people, and execution of multiple former leaders. Albania recognizes the upward of 1 million citizens who have been displaced and forced to refuge from their homes as we support plans to promote helping these people.
