Aung San Suu Kyi re-elected opposition party leader
Yangon: Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi was Sunday re-elected leader of Myanmar`s main opposition party, the National League for Democracy (NLD).
Suu Kyi`s re-election as NLD chairperson took place during the first meeting of its newly-elected 120-member central committee, Xinhua reported.
The NLD`s first national congress in 25 years was attended by around 900 delegates.
The NLD, established in 1988, regained legal party registration in January 2012 following Suu Kyi`s release from house arrest in November 2010, following the country`s first multi-party general elections in 20 years.
In by-elections held in April 2012, the NLD overwhelmingly won 43 of 45 contested parliamentary seats, with Suu Kyi elected as member of the House of Representatives or lower House.
