Myanmar president hails 'triumph' of democratic transition

Myanmar President Thein Sein (R) waves as he leaves parliament after giving his final farewell speech in Napyidaw on January 28, 2016President Thein Sein hailed the “triumph” of Myanmar’s transition of power Thursday, in a last address to a military-dominated parliament before it makes way for a historic new legislature led by Aung San Suu Kyi’s pro-democracy party. The Southeast Asian nation, choked for decades under junta rule, is on the cusp of a remarkable political handover after Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy (NLD) thundered to victory in November elections. Myanmar’s people are hoping her government can reboot a country eviscerated by army rule that battered the economy and repressed dissent.
