• Suu Kyi, army chief hold new talks


    NAYPYIDAW, Myanmar: Aung San Suu Kyi met Myanmar’s army chief for the third time since her pro-democracy party swept elections, officials said Wednesday, heightening speculation that the military may hold sway over the selection of the next president. Suu Kyi, barred from top office by the junta-era constitution, has exactly one month before her party needs to put forward candidates for a president who will take power in April. Multiple rounds of talks have been held in the capital in recent weeks between the key players in the delicate political transition from army rule. Myanmar’s army confirmed that the Nobel laureate and military leader Min Aung Hlaing “met and held discussions” at army headquarters in Naypyidaw on Wednesday.
