Incorrect facts. The information on Min Aung Hlang is incorrect. Edit

This page is incorrect and not stating the facts of what is really happening in Myanmar. He has forcibly taken control of the elected leader and government.. can you please take this page down immediately. You are supporting a dictatorship and a human rights abuser. He was also responsible for the killing of Rohinyga and ethnic cleansing. Suecode (talk) 20:24, 19 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  Not done: The article does state that he led the coup and does mention his involvement in the Rohinyga Genocide. I'm at a loss for why you think the simple existence of this article constitutes "supporting a dictatorship and a human rights abuser". No, we will not be taking down this page because you don't like seeing it. You don't have to read it if you don't want to.

Revamping lead Edit

Hello. Reading the article of the general, and saw that the lead is pretty much on his appointments. I feel a revamp is in order to better summarise his life and military/political career.

Min Aung Hlaing (Burmese: မင်းအောင်လှိုင်; born 3 July 1956) is a Burmese politician and army general who serves as the 12th prime minister of Myanmar since August 2021. Also the Commander-in-chief of Defence Services since March 2011, he rose to power as Chairman of the State Administration Council (SAC) through the February 2021 coup d'état.[1][2] He previously served as Joint Chief of Staff of the Ministry of Defence from 2010 to 2011 and was a member of the National Defence and Security Council (NDSC) chaired by the president of Myanmar.[3]

Born in Tavoy, Burma, Min studied law at the Rangoon Arts and Science University, before joining the military. Rising through its ranks, he became a five-star general by 2013.[4] During the period of civilian rule from 2011 to 2021, Min worked to ensure the military's continued role in politics, and forestalled the peace process with ethnic armed groups. Min was closely involved with the military's crackdown on the Rohingyas which led to the Rohingya Crisis.

Claiming voting irregularities and electoral fraud in the 2020 Myanmar general election, Min seized power through the 2021 coup.[5][6] Having detained several lawmakers, the President U Win Myint and State Counsellor Daw Aung San Su Kyi, he established the interim State Administration Council (SAC). With the outbreak of the 2021 Myanmar protests, Min has ordered a clampdown and suppression of demonstrations.[7] With allegations of human rights abuse and corruption, Min has been subjected to a series of international sanctions.

The page itself seems to be in a jumbled mess with some gaping holes, especially his involvement in the crackdown on the protestors in the 2021 protests (also his response to the COVID-19 outbreak), and also what exactly he has done from 2011 to 2021. I suggest more research in these areas.--ZKang123 (talk) 05:25, 13 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Discussion Edit

Tartan357 is very over! You are what? Pls someone report Tartan357 to ANI for over ruling and judging on Burmese related articles without discussion with Burmese language editor. Wikipedia is not your mother's home and, you can't do everything you want here!

As I'm a Burmese, I strongly agress that Min A H is still hold the position, Chairman of SAC, added by Kantabon. Taung Tan (talk) 08:04, 15 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I just found the website for "Commander in Chief of Defense Services" describes Min Aung Hlaing as "Chairman of SAC Prime Minister" in their news and statements. Htanaungg (talk) 10:32, 15 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Order Edit

@Mewulwe: List of prime ministers of Myanmar shows all twelve prime ministers. You can follow the links to the PMs and see there have been twelve, with sources to back those term dates up. It's a little silly to expect us to add sources for all 11 previous PM term start and end dates into this article just to get the order. There are cases, such as succession in templates, where it is reasonable to rely on the immediately linked articles for very basic information. ― Tartan357 Talk 21:29, 20 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There is generally no objective way of counting officeholders. In this case, he might as well be 15th if you apply the counting method of U.S. presidents, separately counting multiple non-consecutive tenures. That's why numbers should only be given where (semi-)official numbering systems exist. Mewulwe (talk) 08:33, 21 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Mewulwe, that makes sense to me. I have not found sources for either numbering scheme, so I've removed it from the list article. ― Tartan357 Talk 01:19, 22 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This isn't the first time Mewulwe has edit-warred to remove numberings from office holder bio infoboxes. GoodDay (talk) 17:15, 9 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Note: I've removed the numberings from the infoboxes of the previous prime ministers of Burma/Myanmar. If for no other reason, then to bring them in line with this bio article's infobox. If it's re-added that Min Aung is the 12th prime minister & not reverted? Then I'll restore the numberings of his predecessors. GoodDay (talk) 00:42, 10 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The ref cite: <ref name=ranksawarded> -- which originally incorrectly identified its source as "Tokyo Broadcasting System Television" (I've corrected it to the Dhaka, Bangladesh-based "The Business Standard") -- is, unfortunately, an improper WP:CIRCULAR reference, because cited article, in turn, cites Wikipedia as its source.

This improper reference is the sole cited source for 6 different statements in this Wikipedia article, so I've flagged them all as [better source needed]. Would encourage an editor with time & interest to provide suitable replacement references for each.

Change (remove) the word politician from "Min Aung Hlaing (Burmese: မင်းအောင်လှိုင် pronounced [mɪ́ɰ̃ àʊɰ̃ l̥àɪɰ̃]; born 3 July 1956) is a Burmese politician and army general".

He is not a politician, he is the army general who took power by coup. He still does not have any political credentials, just taking PM position by coup doesn't qualify for that. MMFacts (talk) 16:57, 6 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Just a question Edit

I don't think this dictator is able to control his power anymore in some places, such as Kayah State and Saging Region. According to this source, the revolution leader in Palel town of Saging, he said " the Dictator's military isn't able to control Saging, anymore. Here's a link
