Naypyitaw, Myanmar, Aug 12: Myanmar's government is urging pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi to officially register her National League for Democracy as a party so it can legally take part in politics.


Information Minister Kyaw Hsan told a rare news conference Friday that the government has not cracked down on the group so far in the interests of national reconciliation.

His suggestion came two days before Suu Kyi plans to make her first political foray into the countryside since her release from seven years of house arrest last November. She was detained after her last such trip in 2003.

The government ordered the NLD's dissolution after it failed to register for last November's general election, which it called unfair and undemocratic. AP
