We must all prepare to reach this goal.”

Moreover, the Acting President reiterated that the Myanmar military leaders had pushed the situation to the point where the people have to take up arms and defend themselves, so they must finish the drama that they had started.

2. The Inter-Parliamentary Council (IPU) decided not to recognize the military regime in Myanmar, in solidarity with the elected MPs

On January 23, the Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (CRPH) said that the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) decided not to recognize the military regime in Myanmar, in solidarity with the elected MPs, while quoting the statement in the Result of the 145th IPU Assembly, which was held in October 2022.

“As for Myanmar, the Governing Council noted with regret that no significant development had occurred since the last Assembly. The situation had worsened, as the execution of some parliamentarians had occurred. The junta had said that it would organize elections by August 2023. In this light, the Governing Council decided to maintain the stance adopted in Nusa Dua not to recognize the military regime in Myanmar, in solidarity with the elected MPs. The Governing Council also acknowledged that for the moment those MPs were not able to function as a fully-fledged parliament. It therefore maintained its decision that the Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw continue to attend IPU Assemblies in an observer capacity.”
