Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi was Sunday re-elected leader of Myanmar`s main opposition party, the National League for Democracy.
It is the National League for Democracy, led by democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi and currently country`s best hope for building a viable political opposition after half a century of authoritarian rule.
Suu Kyi said she hoped for a swift resolution to a dispute that has delayed her debut into Myanmar`s Parliament.
The NLD has baulked at the wording of the oath, which requires them to protect a constitution, drawn up by former junta.
NLD wants to change the vow to "safeguard the constitution" to instead say "respect the constitution".
Aung San Suu Kyi has hailed the victory of her party NLD in by-lections as a "triumph of the people" after decades of military dictatorship.
Suu Kyi will not vote in upcoming by-elections despite running for a seat in parliament, an official said.
Aung San Suu Kyi`s party complained its campaigning for upcoming parliamentary by-elections was being stifled.
Suu Kyi declined to say yet if she herself will stand in the election when pressed on the issue.
The Myanmar government has officially recognized Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi`s National League for Democracy (NLD) as a political party, authorities said Tuesday.
Myanmar democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi and her NLD are seeking a judicial order to reinstate it as a legal political party.
