Myanmar Military Coup, Promises to Hand Power back
Myanmar’s military denied on Tuesday that its dismissal of the elected government was a coup, further indicating that its action towards it was justified.
This was due to the fraud in a November 2020 election that was not addressed, and it would hand back power after a new election could be done.
According to Brigadier General Zaw Min Tun, the spokesman for the ruling council stated the following: “Our objective is to hold an election and hand power to the winning party”.
