At the Cabinet Meeting (6/2023) of the National Unity Government held on February 14, Union Prime Minister Mahn Winn Khine Thann said that the military council is at its weakest, as follows:

“Actually, everyone realizes that the military council is now at its weakest point in history, and now is the best time for it to collapse. At this time, it is true that we [all revolutionary forces] need to have stronger alliances and agreements between us.”

Furthermore, the Union Prime Minister also directed the National Unity Government to prepare the sectors that require preparation and give full effort to the sectors that require effort.

2. NUG’s Defence Minister U Yee Mon says that the Spring Revolution is being staged not with the strength of the NUG alone but with the strength of the ethnic resistance organizations.

In an interview in February, Defence Minister U Yee Mon said that the National Unity Government (NUG) is collaborating with the ethnic resistance organisations (EROs) to stage the Spring Revolution, as follows:

“The spring revolution is not being staged solely on the strength of the NUG. Our People’s Defence Force (PDF) is collaborating with the ethnic resistance organisations under a single systematic command and control system. As the military regional commanders—the heads of the military regions formed jointly by the NUG and the EROs—the veteran senior military leaders of the EROs are in charge.”

The National Unity Government is putting in place a command and control system and arming forces based on military zones.

3. NUG’s Union Minister Dr. Tu Hkawng says that every political party that supports the interests of the general public has no reason to participate in Min Aung Hlaing’s sham election

On February 15, Union Minister Dr. Tu Hkawng wrote on social media the following regarding the sham election to be held by military junta leader Min Aung Hlaing:

“Every political party that supports the interests of the people has no reason to participate in the election that will be held by Min Aung Hlaing, and there is no reason for them to support it. It is wrong in terms of democratic principles to accept Min Aung Hlaing’s principles merely because one dislikes the NLD party.”

The terrorist military junta has announced it will hold a sham election in 2023.

“We are not revolutionizing person; rather, we are revolutionizing principle. We are revolutionizing the principle of eternal military slavery imposed by the junta led by Min Aung Hlaing. Any person or organization that supports that principle may become the enemy of the revolution,” continued the Union Minister.

Although other members of the Pyu Saw Htee junta-backed militia were presented inside the tea shop, only Myint Yee was able to clear due to a scarcity of weapons and ammunition, and the enemy’s weapons could not be seized, said the S.O.F.
