Suu Kyi cautiously optimistic for Myanmar future
Question of the Day
U Tun Oo was elected to parliament in the 1990 election won by Suu Kyi’s party that was nullified by the military regime and served as finance minister for the elected government in exile. Now Tun Oo, who was a construction engineer in Asia, works in a Fort Wayne factory. When he’s not working, he heads the local branch of Suu Kyi’s party.
“She is the hope for the people,” said Ba Kyi, who helps the Burmese opposition in exile. “She can bring democracy again in Burma.”
But in her Tuesday speech, Suu Kyi cautioned her supporters — this time in English — that she is not infallible.
“A popular leader is not the same as a good leader,” Suu Kyi said. “I hope you keep that in mind.”
