State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and President U Win Myint will run in the 2020 elections, National League for Democracy spokesperson U Myo Nyunt told a party executive committee meeting in Nay Pyi Taw on Saturday.

“We will contest the 2020 election because we want to continue serving the country,” he said.

The State Counsellor and the president will have the right to canvass in their constituencies but will need to resign their cabinet positions if they want to conduct a nationwide campaign.

The NLD will make sure that the election is free and fair and will try to win votes without resorting to corruption, said U Myo Nyunt.
