Suu Kyi ‘intends’ to join Myanmar by-elections
Myanmar’s democracy champion Aung San Suu Kyi
plans to run in Myanmar’s upcoming by-elections, her spokesman said
Monday, after her party decided to rejoin the official political
arena. “Daw Suu said she intends to take part in the election,” Nyan
Win, spokesman for her National League for Democracy (NLD), told AFP.
Daw is a term of respect in Myanmar. Suu Kyi hinted that she would
stand for office at a meeting of party delegates on Friday, when
they decided to re-register as a political party and contest
elections after boycotting last year’s vote, Myanmar’s first in 20
years. There are 48 parliamentary seats available but no polling
dates have been set for by-elections.
