Burma's Suu Kyi wants to become president in 2015
Burma's Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma's head of the Burmese political party, says she wants to become the next woman to become the next woman in 2015, when she plans to hold domestic election as part of a continuous transitional process from decade-long warlords. On Thursday, the Nobel Peace Prize winner talked to the World Economic Forum delegation in Burma's Naypyitaw.
"I' m running for the presidency, and I' m open to it. When I pretend I don't want to be President, I wouldn't be sincere. However, the presidency is not directly elect. Further policy reform required Burma's long-standing junta regime to relinquish control in 2011 and introduce a civil administration that enabled Aung San Suu Kyi and members of her National League for Democracy to gain seat in the 2012 by-elections.
It had been grounded for 15 years under army command. But the Burmese draft bill on the Burmese government discredited her from the chairmanship, saying that anyone serving in office must not have spouses or kids who are foreigners. Two of Aung San Suu Kyi's daughters with her deceased husbands Michael Aris are Britons.
It also demands a certain amount of militaristic expertise from the chairman, which the head of the government does not have. Aung San Suu Kyi told panelists that changes to important constituent provisions require more than 75 per cent agreement in both chambers of this House, where a fourth of legislators are non-elected members of the armed forces.
Burma's Aung San Suu Kyi's appeal has led her to cast a shadow over acting President Thein Sein, a former general who also spoke to the forums on Thursday. Said his administration "is working tirelessly to move from junta administration to democracy" and is working towards other objectives such as ending racial conflict and economic reform.
In her press briefing, Aung San Suu Kyi replied to a Burmese VOA employment services issue by saying that creating new employment was the top preoccupation voiced by Burmese citizens across the state. The number one is employment, the number two is work, the number three is streets, the number four is power, the number five is training, the number six is heath.
That is why employment is a top preoccupation, especially for our youngsters. "She said that in her electoral district of Kawmhu, near Burma's trading capitol Rangoon, alumni joblessness is 75 per cent, a number approaching the nation wide one. NLD chairman said that if young jobless losers lost their hopes in the near term, they would become a serious threat to the country's society.
