Aung San Suu Kyi parliament oath dispute 'resolved'
Monday 30 April 2012
A dispute over the wording of Burma's legislative oath has been resolved, opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi said today .
Ms Suu Kyi said she and the rest of her party's elected MPs would attend parliament for the first time on Wednesday.
The party had objected to phrasing that obligated them to "safeguard the constitution". It had vowed to amend the document because it was drafted under military rule and ensures the army inordinate power.
It was not immediately clear how the dispute was resolved.
The dispute had threatened to unravel a fragile and unprecedented detente between the opposition and the military-backed government.
