Call for change

, May 17, 2014

Myanmar's pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi and 88 generation leader Min Ko Naing talk during a speech calling for the amendment of the 2008 Constitution at a rally in Boseinman Stadium in Yangon, on May  17. The 2008 Constitution, which was drafted under a military regime, reserves a quarter of parliamentary seats for military personnel chosen by the armed forces chief. It also disqualifies presidential and vice-presidential candidates whose spouses or children are citizens of a foreign country. Suu Kyi's late husband, academic Michael Aris, was British, as are their two grown-up sons. Reuters/Soe Zeya Tun
