National Reconciliation on the track

National League for Democracy leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi held separate talks with President U Thein Sein and Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing in the capital city of Nay Pyi Taw two days ago.
Though full details of the talks are yet to be made public, the meetings among Myanmar’s three political kingpins were hailed as a great success in this changeover period after the NLD claimed a landslide victory in the country’s first ever free and fair elections in a quarter of a century, securing 80 percent of parliamentary seats in the 8 November election.
Analysts described the initiative as a bold move from the president and the commander-in-chief to have pledged their all-out assistance to a smooth transfer of power and responsibility, as well as committing to fully cooperating with the handover – thereby easing public anxiety.
It is encouraging to hear that Daw Aung San Suu Kyi has taken a decisive step to scrutinise the efficiency and ability of her representatives-elect, encouraging them to build their own capacity through a careful study of the constitution and the party’s policies.
In addition, she warned them that the party’s landslide win does not derive from the capacity of individual members, but from courageous and determined individuals who desire real change.
Judging from what these public figures said, there is every reason to believe that they have come together to put the country on the track of national reconciliation.
