Freed at Last

A special parliamentary election is scheduled this Sunday in Myanmar after more than 20 years of struggle between the ruling military and a pro-democracy movement. Pro-democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi could win one of the 45 seats in the 664-seat parliament, her first term in office. The military needs her participation in the elections to emerge from isolation.

Left, Aung San Suu Kyi, leader of Myanmar's democracy movement, campaigns in Aungban, Shan State, on Mar. 1. Finally freed from house arrest in 2010, Suu Kyi has rejuvenated the pro-democracy movement, drawing huge crowds even though she fell ill during campaigning.
