原文:

Myanmar military television said on Feb. 1, 2021, that the military was taking control of the country for one year, while reports said many of the country's senior politicians including Aung San Suu Kyi had been detained.

Military-owned Myawaddy TV announced the takeover and cited a section of the military-drafted constitution that allows the military to take control in times of national emergency. The reason for takeover was in part due to the government's failure to act on the military's claims of voter fraud in last November's election and its failure to postpone the election because of the coronavirus crisis.

The announcement follows days of concern about the threat of a military coup-and military denials that it would stage one-and came on the morning the country's new Parliament session was to begin.

中譯:

緬甸軍方電視台於2021年2月1日表示,軍方將接管該國1年,同時指出,包括翁山蘇姬在內的多名高階政府官員,均已遭拘禁。

緬甸軍媒《米瓦迪電視台》宣布軍方接掌政權,並引用軍方擬定的憲法章節—准由軍方於國家緊急狀態時期接管國政。軍方之所以會接掌政權,部分係因軍方指稱去年11月選舉舞弊案,緬甸政府未能採取作為,且未因應新冠病毒危機,將大選延期實施。

在宣布此一消息前幾天,民眾就對軍事政變的威脅憂心不已;軍方則否認會發動政變,而就在緬甸國會新會期一開張的當天上午,政變於焉上演。
