昂山素季铁杆支持者当选为缅甸新总统 Loyalist of Aung San Suu Kyi elected new president





Myanmar's parliament Wednesday elected Win Myint, a loyalist of Aung San Suu Kyi, as new president, while she retained her executive authority over the government.

Myint replaces Htin Kyaw who retired last week for health reasons.

Myint received 403 votes of the combined houses, nearly doubling the total (211) for Myint Swe, the military's nominee, and Vice President Henry Van Tio, who came in a distant third.

The vote comes as Suu Kyi's civilian government has struggled to implement peace and national reconciliation.

The military is still combating ethnic rebels and the country has come under heavy international criticism for its brutal counterinsurgency campaign against the Muslim Rohingya minority.
