Suu Kyi says Burma still not democratic enough

Suu Kyi says Burma still not democratic enough

Burma’s Opposition Leader Aung San Suu Kyi  has warned her country still has a long way to go before it can be considered democratic.

Ms Suu Kyi arrived in Australia yesterday and has used a speech at the Sydney Opera House last night to outline problems with the country’s laws and why she cannot run for President.

The pro democracy advocate cannot run as a candidate because President’s need military experience and women are not allowed in the defence force.

The Nobel Laureate told listeners Burma is restricted because of its constitution.

Ms Suu Kyi will meet with Prime Minister Tony Abbott in Canberra today.
