Aung San Suu Kyi’s party

MYANMAR democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi’s party, for two decades the symbol of resistance against the ruling junta, was dissolved at midnight on Thursday under laws laid down ahead of elections.

The National League for Democracy (NLD) refused to meet a May 6 deadline to re-register as a political party – a move that would have forced it to expel its own leader – and boycotted the vote scheduled for later this year.
