The tremendous amount of public goodwill and trust engendered by Daw Aung San Suu Kyi bought the government some leeway initially. But it has started to wear off and the grumbling has begun as the public encounters a lagging political process that was never prepared to meet the ballooning expectations it was confronted with.

Nevertheless, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi reminded the Pakokku reisdents yesterday that her administration is still less than a year old and working through some growing pains.

“People should say what that they need to say and should do what they have to do. However, they should also be patient when they need to be patient,” she said.

She introduced local residents to the ministers and chief ministers accompanying her yesterday. Four ministers, with health, agriculture, social welfare and education portfolios attended, along with Magwe Region Chief Minister U Aung Moe Nyo, and Mandalay Region Chief Minister U Zaw Myint Maung.

“The chief minister is your main person point person in the government,” she said. “[You] have the right to ask for services from [your chief minister].”
If people do not ask for what they want, then how can the chief minister serve them? She asked.

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi said her cabinet will try its best to ensure that the people who voted it into power will be satisfied.

“We never told the people that we could do everything,” she warned. “We have said repeatedly that things will get done successfully only with the cooperation and participation of the public,” said the state counselor.
