Suu Kyi declares to lead government in Myanmar
Oct.7, Naypyidaw: Aung San Suu Kyi, opposition leader of Myanmar has declared to lead the country if her National League for Democracy (NLD) comes to power in the upcoming election.
She declared to lead the country despite the fact that she is constitutionally banned from the presidency because she married and had children with a foreign citizen.
The historic poll on 8 November is set to be the first openly contested general election in 25 years.
The NLD is expected to win the most seats.
Myanmar does not have a prime minister and the president, who is voted on by parliament after the election, serves as both head of state and head of government.
