Help

Burma's pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi has said she will stand for election to parliament, as her party rejoined the political process.

On Friday her National League for Democracy said it would register to run in as yet unscheduled by-elections.

The party boycotted the last polls in November 2010, the first in 20 years.
