Myanmar tells Suu Kyi to halt political activities

Aung San Suu Kyi`s NLD party was disbanded by Myanmar`s military rulers last year.

Yangon: Myanmar`s new military-backed government has warned pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi and her party to halt all political activities, official media said on Wednesday.

The Home Affairs Ministry has written to the Nobel Peace Prize winner saying her party is breaking the law by maintaining party offices, holding meetings and issuing statements, the New Light of Myanmar newspaper reported.

"If they really want to accept and practise democracy effectively, they are to stop such acts that can harm peace and stability and the rule of law as well as the unity among the people including monks and service personnel," it said.

Suu Kyi`s National League for Democracy (NLD) party was disbanded by Myanmar`s military rulers last year because it boycotted the country`s first election in two decades, saying the rules were unfair.

The New Light said the party could transform into a social organisation provided it obtained permission from the authorities.
