Aung San Suu Kyi nominated to join Myanmar cabinet


NAYPYIDAW: Myanmar's president-elect has nominated Aung San Suu Kyi to join the cabinet formed by her National League for Democracy (NLD), the speaker of parliament said on Tuesday (Mar 22), after the party swept to a historic election victory in November.

A list of proposed cabinet ministers seen by Reuters showed the Nobel peace prize laureate's name next to four ministries: Minister of the president's office, foreign affairs, electric power and energy, and education.

The Nobel laureate, who has vowed to rule above the next president Htin Kyaw, was named first in a list of ministers read out to lawmakers by the parliament speaker, who did not specify which position she or others would hold.

"I hereby present the list of names for those who should become union ministers, proposed to the parliament by the president-elect," parliament speaker Mann Win Khaing Than told MPs.

A parliamentary vote to confirm the posts is expected later in the week.

Suu Kyi led the NLD to a landslide win, but a constitution drafted by the former junta bars her from the presidency because her two sons are British citizens, as was her late husband.

The incoming government will take power next month.
