Burma's opposition National League for Democracy party has marked its 16th anniversary with another call for the release of its leader, Aung San Suu Kyi and other political prisoners.
About 400 party supporters, along with foreign diplomats, UN officials, representatives of other political parties and the media attended a low-key ceremony today (Monday) at the party's headquarters in the capital, Rangoon.
During the ceremony, NLD members read a statement calling for the release of Aung San Suu Kyi, party vice chairman Tin Oo and all other political prisoners.
In its statement, the NLD also called for the convening of a People's Parliament, which would represent the victors of the 1990 election. The NLD won the election in a landslide.
