APNewsBreak: Suu Kyi says dispute over Myanmar's legislative oath has been resolved
YANGON, Myanmar (AP) ' Opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi says a dispute over the wording of Myanmar's legislative oath has been resolved.
Suu Kyi said Monday that she and the rest of her party's elected lawmakers will attend parliament for the first time on Wednesday.
The party had objected to phrasing that obligated them to "safeguard the constitution." The party had vowed to amend the document because it was drafted under military rule and ensures the army inordinate power.
It was not immediately clear how the dispute was resolved.
The dispute had threatened to unravel a fragile and unprecedented detente between the opposition and the military-backed government.
