YANGON, Myanmar (AP) — Hundreds of members of Myanmar’s deposed ruling party have declared themselves to be the sole legitimate representatives of the people and asked for international recognition as the country’s government. Protests against the military takeover also swelled Friday. Nearly 300 politicians from ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi’s party announced they had named a committee to carry out the functions of Parliament, according to a party Facebook. In a letter to the United Nations and the international community, the party also asked for targeted sanctions and for businesses to cut ties with the military. The lawmakers had been set to take their seats Monday in a new session of Parliament, when the military announced it was taking over for a year.
