The Economist asks:

Will the powers of the government of Myanmar cease to be held by the military before 1 October 2022?

In 2021, the military (aka "Defence Services") of Myanmar detained various government officials and declared a one-year state of emergency under the constitution, later extending their intended grip on power as various opposition groups fight to dislodge it (Economist, Radio Free Asia, Myanmar Times) Per Article 419, the Commander-in-Chief of the Defence Services "shall have the right to exercise the powers of legislature, executive and judiciary" (Myanmar Constitution). The question would close "Yes" if these powers stop being wholly held by the military.
