Myanmar opposition declares Constitution “dead,” announces new one

Anti-coup protesters returned to the streets across Myanmar on Thursday, with some burning copies of the 2008 Constitution that guarantees the military’s role in politics, a day after pro-democracy forces announced a provisional charter in its place.

The opposition group called the Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw, or CRPH, which consists mostly of members of ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy and fashions itself as a provisional government, also announced the rescinding of the 2008 Constitution.
