‘The Lady’ takes power

Letters

I HAVE been following events in Burma from Bahrain. Finally, after Aung San Suu Kyi founded the National League for Democracy  (NLD) in 1988, after she won the 1990 election by a landslide, after the military ignored the results and put her under house arrest for 15 of the next 21 years, after a difficult five-year transition since 2011 where the return of democracy to Burma was often in doubt, after 54 years of military rule, the woman that Burmese just call “The Lady” is in power.
