Mr Phyo Zeya, a former lawmaker from Ms Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy who was arrested in November, was sentenced to death in January for offences under anti-terrorism laws.
No date has been set for the executions, Mr Zaw Min said.
The junta’s decision to “move towards executing two prominent political leaders will be like pouring gasoline on the fire of popular anti-military resistance in the country”, said Phil Robertson, a deputy director at Human Rights Watch.
The junta issued an arrest warrant for him last year, alleging he had incited unrest with his social media posts.
