After over 2 decades under house arrest, Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi’s struggle for her country has finally bear fruit. The pro-democracy icon has won a seat in parliament in a by-election over the weekend, sparking scenes of jubilation among her supporters.
It was a historic victory that seen impossible just a few years ago. In the grand scheme of things, the win probably won’t mean much as the military junta still control all levers of control within Myanmar but it is a step in the right direction. A small step but a step nevertheless.
Congratulations to Aung San Suu Kyi for her victory and may this victory be but the first step for democracy in Myanmar.
