Aung San Suu Kyi is best known to be the opposition leader in Myanmar, and also the winner of the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1991. Presently, she is the chairperson of NLD or National League for Democracy in Myanmar. She remained under house arrest from 1989 to 2010, due to which she has become one of the most prominent political prisoners in the world.
In 2012, she was elected to the Pyithu Hluttaw to represent the Kawhmu constituency. Suu Kyi is often referred to as Daw Aung San Suu Kyi in Burma, which means ‘aunt’ that is added to her name to show her respect.
