Impeachment! (Myanmar/Burma)

Earlier yesterday, Myanmar’s parliament proceeded with impeachment charges against the Constitutional Tribunal members. The Pyithu Hluttaw has formed an investigatory committee under Deputy Speaker U Nanda Kyaw Swa and 14 other members.

I could be wrong, but the long delay and lead-up to the impeachment charges could suggest some hesitancy on the part of Hluttaw leaders. After all, the Hluttaw voted last week to ask the tribunal to apologize, suggesting that MPs would be satisfied with simply reversing the decision. Over the next few weeks, we’ll see if either the tribunal or president can find an acceptable “way out” for the legislature, if the MPs are indeed looking for one.
