Interview: Outgoing MP Hla Swe and the candidate that beat him

The results of Burma’s election have now been declared. Senior Union Solidarity and Development Party figure Hla Swe was one of the many government representatives that lost their seat.

In the wake of the historic vote, DVB sits down with Hla Swe and the National League for Democracy’s Than Soe, the candidate that beat him out of the Upper House seat of Gangnaw, Sagaing Division.

The former and future parliamentarians discuss the election and how an NLD majority parliament will pick up from the incumbent legislature, one dominated by former soldiers such as Hla Swe.
