In Myanmar, ethnic loyalties could crimp Suu Kyi's party| Reuters

TAUNGGYI, Myanmar Political parties representing Myanmar's ethnic minorities could pick up a sizeable number of seats at general elections later this year, presenting a stumbling block for the ambitions of democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi and her party. Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy (NLD) is looking to become a dominant force in parliament after the November elections, taking over the reins of a military-initiated reform process that is now seen as stalled. Myanmar does not have opinion polls, but analysts widely believe the NLD will prevail over the ruling, pro-military Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP) of President Thein Sein in the country's heartland, home to the majority Bama ethnic group. #India #Middle East #Latin America #Foreign policy #opinion
