Malaysia will oppose any election conducted by the Burmese military

Malaysia will oppose any election conducted by the Burmese military, and that ASEAN should do the same on July 30, Malaysia’s foreign minister said

The minister also said that there must be a free and fair election agreed upon by all parties involved with in transition plan; cease fire; in addition to the country’s stability plan; real transformation and restructuring.

Also, ASEAN needs to get the latest information about what is really happening in Myanmar from those who know the truth, the minister said.

ASEAN is the international community in supporting the Myanmar people in any way possible. He also said that it is necessary to work together with the UN Secretary-General and the Special Representative.

“Malaysia became the first member-state of the regional bloc to officially contact Myanmar’s shadow, civilian National Unity Government (NUG). In the wake of the executions, ASEAN needs to meet that government’s representatives as soon as possible. Now is the time for this meeting to be hastened and [for] its progress [to be] made public.”

Through his diplomacy Malaysia became the first member-state of the regional bloc to officially contact Myanmar’s shadow, civilian National Unity Government (NUG).

In the wake of the executions, ASEAN needs to meet that government’s representatives as soon as possible, Saifuddin said.

“Now is the time for this meeting to be hastened and [for] its progress [to be] made public,” he wrote on Facebook.

“I am of the opinion that ASEAN needs to have a framework that has an end game and lay out the matters/processes required to achieve that end game. … In this context, ASEAN needs to have accurate and up-to-date information about what is actually happening by obtaining it directly from the involved parties.”

“I am of the opinion that ASEAN needs to have a framework that has an end game and lay out the matters/processes required to achieve that end game. … In this context, ASEAN needs to have accurate and up-to-date information about what is actually happening by obtaining it directly from the involved parties. The end-game, is a “democratic, inclusive and just, peaceful and harmonious, prosperous Myanmar whose civil and political rights are guaranteed by the constitution.”

The end-game, he said, is a “democratic, inclusive and just, peaceful and harmonious, prosperous Myanmar whose civil and political rights are guaranteed by the constitution.

Saifuddin reiterated that Myanmar military regime representatives should “not be allowed” at any meeting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, including the next ASEAN foreign ministers’ gathering, scheduled for Aug. 3 in Phnom Penh.

“To make a consensus among the member-states will be difficult. Myanmar did not respect the international community’s decision,” the senior lecturer in international relations at the Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin in Malaysia told BenarNews.

“It will be highly appreciated if Malaysia can take a consistently strong political stand to restore democracy in Myanmar,” he added.
