Political Life. Aung San Suu Kyi speaking to her supporters On August 8th, there was a nation-wide uprising that the military junta in power suppressed by killing thousands of demonstrates. In , an election was held, and the party with which Suu Kyi was now affiliated—the National League for Democracy—won more than 80 percent of the parliamentary seats.
However, that outcome was predictably ignored by the junta; 20 years later, they formally annulled the results. Suu Kyi was released from house arrest in July , and the next year she attended the NLD party congress, under the continual harassment of the military.
Three years later, she founded a representative committee and declared it the country's legitimate ruling body. In response, the junta in September once again placed her under house arrest. She was released in May In , the NLD clashed in the streets with pro-government demonstrators, and Suu Kyi was yet again arrested and placed under house confinement. In May , just before she was set to be released from house arrest, Suu Kyi was arrested once more, this time charged with an actual crime—allowing an intruder to spend two nights at her home, a violation of her terms of house arrest.
He was also subsequently imprisoned, returning to the United States in August In August, however, Suu Kyi went to trial and was convicted and sentenced to three years in prison.
The sentence was reduced to 18 months, and she was allowed to serve it as a continuation of her house arrest. Those within Myanmar and the concerned international community believed that the ruling was simply brought down to prevent Suu Kyi from participating in the multiparty parliamentary elections scheduled for the following year the first since These fears were realized when a series of new election laws were put in place in March In support of Suu Kyi, the NLD refused to re-register the party under these new laws and was disbanded.
The government parties ran virtually unopposed in the election and easily won a vast majority of legislative seats, with charges of fraud following in their wake.
Suu Kyi was released from house arrest six days after the election. In November , the NLD announced that it would re-register as a political party, and in January , Suu Kyi formally registered to run for a seat in parliament.
