Myanmar’s armed forces launched a coup on Monday and arrested prominent political figures, including Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, dealing a major blow to the country’s important and irregular progress toward democracy, which was achieved after five decades of military rule.

He stated that this measure was necessary because the government did not take any action on the fraud allegations raised after the November elections (in which Suu Kyi’s ruling party won a majority of parliamentary seats at stake) and because that government convened for that election despite the coronavirus epidemic.
