Public backlash against Myanmar army's blacklisted VP nominee

Myanmar's military have nominated Myint Swe as their vice presidential nomineeMyanmar’s army sparked public criticism Saturday after it nominated a retired general still blacklisted by the United States to be vice president of the country’s first civilian government in decades. Hardliner Myint Swe, 64, is seen as a close ally of former junta leader Than Shwe and comes from a military establishment that pummelled the Southeast Asian country into poverty under decades of isolationist rule. A parliament dominated by Aung Sang Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy is days away from confirming a president after sweeping to power in November elections, but the still-strong army has the right to nominate a candidate.
