Burma's Aung San Suu Kyi may finally get to take office after 15 years spent under house arrest. The Nobel Peace Prize laureate confirms that she will run for Parliament this April. She was under house arrest during the 2010 elections, the country's first in 20 years. That vote replaced the ruling military junta, but the government remains strongly tied to the Army. The military itself is guaranteed about a quarter of the seats in Parliament, and the main pro-military party holds 80 percent of the remaining elected seats. Still, a victory would give Suu Kyi a voice in government.
