U Nyan Win, central executive committee secretariat member of the National League for Democracy, remarked, “We need to evaluate the current situation of the country with dignity and poise and come together with collective strength in finding ways to practically implement fundamental changes and transitions. We have leadership capability as seen in the processes and experiences that we’ve gone through bravely. All of the challenges should be met with responsibility than fear. The value of greatness is responsibility.”
