Opposition to Draft National Constitution

World IN BRIEF / MYANMAR

September 17, 2000|From Times Wire Reports

Myanmar's democratic opposition, led by Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, declared that it would draft a national constitution, in a sign that a recent official crackdown on the party has not dented its bid to end military rule. About 200 members of the National League for Democracy met at the party's headquarters in Yangon, the capital, two days after authorities eased restrictions against party leaders. The leaders had been confined to their homes for two weeks after Suu Kyi tried to travel outside Yangon for party-related work.
