Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, f. 1945 - Myanmars ( tidl. Burma) oppositionsleder. Den Nationale Liga for Demokrati vandt med hende som spydspids en kæmpevalgsejr i 1990. Militærstyret i Yangon (tidl. Rangoon) nægtede hende adgang til magten. Sad 19 måneder i husarrest indtil maj 2002. Nobelprisvinder 1991. Grundet massive handelsrestriktioner fra USA, Japan og EU er den myanmarske økonomi ved at kollapse. En demokratisk retfærdig udnævnelse af Aung som landets leder vil kunne være starten på bedre liv for de millioner af myanmarere (burmesere). Hun har formatet til at blive en stor asiatisk leder.
Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, b. 1945 - Myanmars ( former Burma) oppositionsleader. BA in philosophy, economy and politics from Oxford univ. (UK). The National League for Democracy headed by her won a huge victory at the election in 1990. The Millitary government in Yangon (Rangoon) however denied her access to the power. Captured in house arrest for 19 months until May 2002. Nobel peace prize winner 1991. Due to potential trade restrictions from the Western society ( USA, Japan and EU) the economy of Myanmar is close to collapse. A democratic fair appointment as head of the government in Myanmar should be a matter of course. That might cause the start of a better life for millions of myanmars (burmesians). She has indeed the stature to become a great asian leader.
