In Pictures—Burma’s Historic By-elections


I jumped into an old cab and noticed a picture of Aung San Suu Kyi and two small flags of her National League for Democracy (NLD) party on the driver’s dashboard. When I said, “You have many of those NLD flags,” the driver pulled out two more party emblems with Suu Kyi’s photo from his pocket while still holding the steering-wheel with his right hand. The slogan read “NLD for the People.” The driver then started telling me how many emblems, flags and logos of Suu Kyi and her party he had collected for himself and his wife at home. “My wife has a purse with this logo too,” Zaw Moe Khaing, in his late 30s, said enthusiastically. It was March 30, two days before Burma’s historic by-elections.
