Burma’s opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, third from left, takes her seat for a regular session of Parliament at Burma’s Lower House in Naypyidaw
Ms Suu Kyi, whose unswerving campaigning saw her locked up for years by the former junta and earned her a Nobel Peace Prize, appeared calm as she arrived to take her seat as an elected politician in the capital Naypyidaw.
“I will try my best for the country,” she said as she embarked on her first day of active public office
