NAYPYITAW/YANGON: The party of Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi has instructed its lawmakers not to leave the capital, rank-and-file members said, fueling speculation of a legal bid to sidestep a clause in the constitution barring the democracy champion from the presidency.
Eight new lawmakers from the National League for Democracy (NLD) said the party's top governing body, the 15-strong Central Executive Committee (CEC), had told them to stay in Naypyitaw, where the NLD-dominated parliament began its five-year term this week.
"We are not allowed to take any leave until the end of next week," said a new NLD member who did not want to be identified. "One of the NLD CEC members said there may be some important matters or emergency bills coming up next week."
The directive has intensified speculation among lawmakers that the party could table legislation to suspend the provision that prevents Nobel Peace Prize laureate Suu Kyi from becoming president despite her thumping win in a historic election in November.
