Suu Kyi: Myanmar's next leader depends on will of the people

By Associated Press in Nepal ( China Daily ) Updated: 2014-06-17 08:07:01

Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi said on Monday the people of Myanmar will decide whether she becomes their next president, reacting to a recent parliamentary vote in favor of keeping a constitutional clause that bars her from the office.

"Whether or not I become the president in the future depends on the will of the people, their will with regard to amending the constitution and their will with regard to whom they wish to choose as a president," she said at the end of a four-day visit to Nepal.

The Myanmar Constitution bars anyone whose spouse or children are loyal to foreign countries from becoming president or vice-president. Suu Kyi's late husband and her two sons are British citizens.
