昂山素季将竞选缅甸议会 Aung San Suu Kyi to Run for Burma Parliament

21 November, 2011

缅甸民主运动领导人昂山素季的一位发言人说,昂山素季将在预计年底举行的下一次议会补缺选举中竞选议员。缅甸全国民主联盟执行委员会成员那温星期一对记者表示,诺贝尔和平奖得主昂山素季将竞选缅甸新参议院中空缺的48个席位中的一席,但是她还没有决定将代表哪一个选区。

昂山素季星期五在会见党派代表时暗示,她将从政参选。代表们决定重新进行政党登记并参加选举。缅甸全国民主联盟去年抵制选举,因为一项法律阻止昂山素季参选。缅甸政府最近撤销了这项法律。

A spokesman for Burma democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi says she will run for a seat in parliament in the country's next bi-election, expected by the end of the year.Nyan Win, a member of the National League for Democracy's executive committee, told reporters Monday the Nobel Peace laureate will run for one of the 48 seats available in Burma's new Senate, but has not yet decided which district she will represent.

The democracy activist hinted that she would run for office at a meeting of party delegates Friday, when they decided to re-register as a political party and take part in elections. The NLD boycotted elections last year because of a law that prevented Aung San Suu Kyi from competing. The government recently repealed that law.
