Myanmar sets parliamentary by-election for April 1

Myanmar sets parliamentary by-election for April 1

Myanmar has set its much anticipated by-election for April 1.
Before the government announced the date Friday, pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi and her National League for Democracy had said they planned to run in every seat in the by-election.
Most of the 48 Parliament seats being contested were vacated by MPs who became Cabinet ministers after the first parliamentary session in January.
Suu Kyi's party boycotted last year's general elections because of restrictive rules that among other things prevented Suu Kyi from being a candidate. The government has since lifted many of those restrictions.
