Myanmar's parliament will convene on Monday with military representatives registered to attend the session.
"Other organizations and media misinterpreted the commander-in-chief's speech and framed it from their point of view", the statement said, adding that "Tatmadaw is abiding by the current constitution. and will perform within the law by defending it".
The ruling National League for Democracy party captured 396 out of 476 seats in the November 8 election, allowing it to form a government led by State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi for another five years.
The constitution reserves 25% of seats in parliament for the military and control of three key ministries in Suu Kyi's administration.
Tension soared this past week after a spokesman for the military said a coup could not be ruled out if military complaints of widespread voting fraud in November's election were ignored.
The next day, Army Chief General Min Aung Hling - arguably the most powerful person in the country - said that repealing the 2008 constitution might be "necessary" under certain circumstances.
Since the election, however, the Myanmar military and the Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP), the military's electoral proxy, have persisted in claiming that the election was marred by fraud.
The military says the lists are required to cross-check for irregularities.
The newly elected MPs are expected to begin sitting in parliament on Feb 1.
In a statement Guterres called on "all actors to desist from any form of incitement or provocation, demonstrate leadership, and to adhere to democratic norms and respecting the outcome of the 8 November general election".
The military and its political allies insist the new parliament can not convene while the issue of the elections remains unresolved.
Long a popular figure in Myanmar, Suu Kyi's run for power in historic 2015 elections was curbed by several constitutional provisions.
The Myanmar constitution forbids her from becoming president because she has children who are foreign nationals.
The party of Ms Suu Kyi, the Nobel Peace prize laureate, won the previous elections in 2015 also in a landslide.
The NLD also then pushed for changes to the constitution in their first term, a process that has made little progress. "We can not keep our mouths shut after we found out such strong evidence", he said at the time.
"The coup rhetoric is not merely a bluff or empty threat", he said.
The election commission has rejected the allegations, saying there were no errors big enough to affect the credibility of the vote.
Among the military's chief complaints are accusations of 8.6 million instances of voter fraud in the country of almost 55 million people, spokesman brigadier general Zaw Min Tun said during a press conference on Tuesday.
The last time the country saw its constitution revoked was in 1962 and 1988 - both when the military seized power and reinstated a junta government.
