London, Wed, 29 Feb 2012 ANI

London, Feb 29 (ANI): Pro-democracy campaigner Aung San Suu Kyi, has now rejoined the political process amid reform in Burma, has been cleared to specifically campaigning for herself to get elected.


Suu Kyi has fought off a legal challenge to her candidacy for a seat in a parliamentary by-election.


A divisional election commission rejected allegations made by her rival for the seat that she was profiting from assets in Britain.


Suu Kyi was released from house arrest in November 2010, The BBC reports.


The election commission's ruling is final and cannot be challenged.


Up until now she was allowed only to campaign for other National League for Democracy (NLD) candidates in general rather than for herself specifically.


The commission agreed with her lawyers that the complaint that she had money and property abroad was groundless. (ANI)
