Suu Kyi says constitutional changes 'crucial' for Myanmar transition
BUDAPEST (AFP) - Myanmar's opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi said on Friday in Budapest that her country "cannot be a democratic nation as long as the (present) Constitution is in effect".
Speaking in Hungary during a tour of central Europe, Ms Suu Kyi said a report ordered by the legislature and due by the end of the year on possible changes to the constitution would "show how genuine the present government is about democratisation".
"The next few months will be crucial for the country's future," she said.
The Constitution was crafted under the former military regime and blocks anyone, like Ms Suu Kyi, whose spouses or children are foreign nationals from leading the country.
