NAY PYI TAW :
A DAY after seizing control of the country, the military in Myanmar on Tuesday released a majority of the detained regional and State Chief Ministers, but there was no word on Nobel Laureate and State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi and President U Win Myint. Confirming the development to Xinhua news agency, a military official said: “There may be a reshuffle among Chief Ministers by appointing qualified ones.”
MPs belonging to Suu Kyi’s ruling National League for Democracy (NLD) party were also among the freed Government official, the source added. Hours after the coup, the military, known as the Tatmadaw, also announced a major Cabinet reshuffle, under which there were new appointments for 11 Ministries, while 24 Deputy Ministers were removed.
