Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi speaks during the first day session of the first ever congress of her National League for Democracy (NLD) at Royal Rose restaurant in Yangon, Myanmar, Saturday, March. 9, 2013. The NLD is holding an all-party congress to elect its own leadership for the first time in the group's 25-year history— an important step toward making it more reflective of its democratic ideals. It is a sign of how far Myanmar has come with political reform that the gathering is allowed at all. But it's also a test for the NLD, which is working to transform itself from a party of one into a structurally viable political opposition in time for national elections in 2015.
