Aung San Suu Kyi is to be Myanmar's new foreign minister in first civilian government country has had in decades. Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy (NLD) party won absolute majority in general election in November 2015 under her leadership. This happened after decades of military rule. However, Suu Kyi is ineligible to become Myanmar's president as she is blocked by country's constitution, which bars people with foreign family links from post - her two sons are British citizens. There are unconfirmed rumours that Ms Suu Kyi could also take on other roles and become minister for education as well as energy minister.

Suu Kyi was sole woman named among 15 ministers. NLD spokesman told reporters: "She will be foreign minister, mainly. If she wants to share duties she has in other ministries with qualified people, she can assign them." foreign ministry role gives her international influence and seat at Myanmar's influential military-dominated security council. Suu Kyi has made it very clear that she will rule above president. She has tried without success in recent weeks to remove constitutional barrier to her becoming president. Trevor Wilson, former ambassador to Myanmar, said: "She wants to be at heart of government. She wants to do it properly and formally and…legally."
