缅甸总统吴廷觉辞职 Myanmar President Resigns





Myanmar's President Htin Kyaw resigned Wednesday with his office saying he wants to take a rest from his duties.

The 71-year-old Htin Kyaw was the country's first democratically elected president in decades, but served in a largely ceremonial role after his friend Aung San Suu Kyi became Myanmar's de facto leader with the title of state councilor. She is constitutionally barred from holding the presidency.

Vice President Myint Swe, a former general, will serve as interim president until a new full-time leader is chosen.

The president's office said that as specified in the constitution, the choice of a new president will come within seven working days.
