Myanmar’s ex-dictator tips Suu Kyi as ‘future leader’

YANGON (TIP): Myanmar’s feared former junta leader Than Shwe has endorsed his one-time nemesis Aung San Suu Kyi as a “future leader” of the country, according to his grandson.

Than Shwe, a postal clerk turned general who ran the country with an iron fist for nearly two decades until 2010, met with democracy champion Suu Kyi on December 17.

Her party is preparing for power after November’s massive election win. The talks mark a dramatic turnaround in fortune for Suu Kyi, who was kept under house arrest for years by the 82-year-old retired general for leading the democracy movement against his army.
