NAYPYIDAW, Myanmar: Aung San Suu Kyi on Saturday said her opposition National League for Democracy would participate in a historic general election in Myanmar set for November, the first to be contested by the party in a quarter of a century.The confirmation comes after Myanmar on Wednesday set November 8 as the day for polls expected to be the most important election in a generation. “We have decided to take part in the election,” Suu Kyi told reporters at a press conference at her residence in the capital Naypyidaw, vowing the party would “amend the constitution” that bars her from the presidency if it wins the polls.
