    The Tatmadaw and Min Aung Hlaing, however, do not have a history of backing down in the face of resistance. Further bloodshed and repression therefore remain probable.

    the coup was more likely the result of a combination of the above factors: the military sincerely believed that election fraud occurred; it felt backed into a corner as tensions with the elected leadership
    came to a head; and Min Aung Hlaing, hungry for personal aggrandisement and bitterly opposed to Aung San Suu Kyi’s dominant position, sensed an opportunity.

    3. The Myanmar Constitution is very clear as to who has the constitutionally defined powers of deciding when and if a "State of Emergency". occurs and the constitutionally defined powers, legal steps, available thereafter.
