President of Myanmar Thin Kyaw (Htin Kyaw), who became the first non-military leader of the state for many decades, announced his resignation in connection with the desire to “rest from the discharge of his duties.”

As noted by Reuters, Kyaw stayed in office for slightly more than two years: he joined the post of President of Myanmar on March 30, 2016.

His position will temporarily take the vice-president of Win Myin (Myint Swe) – until the parliament of the East Asian country chooses a new head of state. According to the constitution of Myanmar, this period should not exceed seven working days.
