NLD cofounder Tin Oo said there should be no gap in the work of Parliament in the power transfer, and the process appears to be on track for the power transfer to the National League for Democracy (NLD).
Tin Oo, 88, a retired general who served seven years in prison prior to the formation of the quasi-civilian government in 2011, told Radio Free Asia (RFA) on December 4 that so far there has been no specific information about the dates or process of a power transfer. 
The NLD leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, last week concluded meetings with out-going President Thein Sein; the military commander in chief, Min Aung Hlain, the former Speak of the House, Shwe Mann; and former dictator Than Swe. 
Tin Oo said it would be good to transfer power to the NLD as soon as possible. People want to see the implementation of the election results that their votes produced, he told RFA.
