Office of the President
Order Number (1/2021)
1 February 2021

1. On 8 November 2020, the general election of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar was conducted under the authority of the Union Election Commission (hereinafter referred to as “UEC”). The “UEC” had not only failed to properly perform their duties but also neglected to ensure free, fair and transparent election.
2. The sovereignty of the power of a nation MUST be derived from the citizens, but the failure of the free and fair electoral process can cause the national sovereignty of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar and the power of people.
3. Refusal to address the caverns raised by several political parties, ethnic groups, and the Tatmadaw, and subsequently calling Pyi Thu Hluttaw (Lower House) and Amyotha Hluttaw (Upper House), as well as (Union Hluttaw) are violations of Article 417 of the Constitution of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar. According to Article 417 of the Constitution of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, “the wrongful forcible means” of taking power shall cause of the loss of the sovereignty of Myanmar and the unity of the ethnic nationalities in Myanmar. There are many people, whom dissatisfied with the necessitous performances of the “UEC” have conducted peaceful protestation over the performance of the “UEC”.
4. As the Government and “UEC” both failed to address the causes, it is the Tatmadaw’s undeniable duty to exercise Article 417 of the “Supreme Law of the Myanmar” – the Constitution of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar to declare “State of Emergency” in accordance with the Constitution of the Republic of the Union.
5. In order to address the concerned of voters, Government of Myanmar decided to utilize Article 418 (a) of the Constitution of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, which mandates the transferring of “Legislative, Judicial and Executive Powers” to the Commander-in-Chief of the Defence Services.
6. In conjunction with the Article 417 of the Constitution of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, this emergency declaration shall remain in force for (one year), effective from today February 1, 2021.
