The Vice-President of Myanmar (also known as Burma) is the second highest-ranking post in the government of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar.[1] The office was established by the 2008 Myanmar constitution and ranks directly after the President. The office came into effect on 30 March 2011, when the new government assumed de jure power and essentially functions in the same manner as any other deputy head of state. There are two vice-presidential posts in the government (according to the website and official), but no distinction is officially made between them. It can be assumed that the posts follow the order of seniority, much like the ones practiced by the Vice Premier of the People's Republic of China.
