news - Suu Kyi Party Seeks Meeting of Detained Leaders

september 22nd, 2009

"The party of Burma opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi said Tuesday it had urged the chief of the ruling junta to allow a meeting between its detained leaders so they can discuss upcoming elections.

The Nobel Laureate's National League for Democracy (NLD) has not yet said if it will participate in next year's polls, which critics say are a sham designed to legitimize the military regime's iron grip on power."
