Myanmar`s Suu Kyi says willing to be President
Yangon: Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi has declared her willingness to serve as her country`s president and her party`s intention to amend the constitution to allow her to do so.
Suu Kyi said today it is her duty as leader of her National League for Democracy to be willing to take the executive office if that is what the people want. Myanmar`s next election is in 2015.
She said a clause in the constitution effectively barring her from the job is one of several her party seeks to change. Suu Kyi last week returned from a 17-day trip in the United States, where she was feted as a hero of democracy.
Myanmar is undergoing political reforms under Thein Sein, a former general elected president in 2010.
