Aung San Suu Kyi’s party today nominated her former driver and close aide to be Myanmar’s next president, as the Nobel laureate looks to rule her former junta-run homeland through a trusted proxy.

“I would like to propose U Htin Kyaw, from the NLD,” said Khin San Hlaing, a lower house MP for Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy, which will also nominate another candidate from the upper house.

Suu Kyi has vowed to rule through a proxy president because she is barred from top office by the army-scripted constitution.
