Suu Kyi's Party to Compete in Myanmar Vote Despite Block

The party of Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi will contest the general election this year even if there is no change in the constitution to allow the Nobel laureate to become president, one of the party's top leaders said on Friday.
NLD Central Executive Committee Secretary Nyan Win said the National League for Democracy would have more power to push for an end to the military’s veto over charter changes and remove the obstacles to her presidency if it wins the election.
