Nay Pyi Taw, Aug 2 (TIWN) Myanmar is likely to hold new general elections in the second half of 2023, Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Sen-Gen Min Aung Hlaing, chair of the newly-formed State Administration Council, said on Sunday.

"In the meantime, we have to do the things that should be done. Then, we will take six months by August 2023 to prepare for the election according to the law," he added.
 
Min's announcement came after the Myanmar junta on July 27 announced the cancellation of the results of the 2020 general elections which were won by ousted de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy (NLD) party.
 
According to the announcement, the results were cancelled as the polls were not held in line with laws and were not fair, the very reasons of the February 1 coup.
 
Since then, Min has held the state power.
