Stability best for Myanmar

China Daily | Updated: 2016-04-01 08:10

The inauguration of Myanmar's first elected civilian president in 54 years on Wednesday marked the smooth power transition in the Southeast Asian nation and the start of a new era.

Given that Myanmar's democratic process started from a relatively low level of social development, the handover of power without any major social disturbance is indeed praiseworthy. The low starting point, however, also means the new government faces some arduous tasks in the years ahead.

Since Aung San Suu Kyi will hold four ministerial posts in the new government, which puts her in a de facto leadership position, she and the new government led by the National League for Democracy will have to quickly make achievements to prove such an arrangement is reasonable.
