Myanmar’s military leader has again promised to hold new elections and hand power to the winner. The statement comes after increasing protests against the military takeover are seen in many cities. The country declared a state of emergency after President U Win Myint and State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi were detained by the military on February 1.

The military had earlier promised a new vote, but did not specify when.
