NAY PYI TAW - Myanmar President U Thein Sein and Aung San Suu Kyi, Chairperson of the election-winning opposition National League for Democracy (NLD), on Wednesday had discussion on establishment of good tradition in systematic power transfer, in Nay Pyi Taw's Presidential Palace, according to Presidential Spokesperson U Ye Htut.

During the dialogue based on national reconciliation between the pair, U Thein Sein congratulated NLD party on its winning of Nov 8 general election with people's support, U Ye Htut said.

Suu Kyi also expressed her thanks to President U Thein Sein on amending law to enable NLD to re-participate in political process from 2012, cooperating with other parties and holding free and fair election as promised.

Both sides also touched on country's post-election government transition matter which is worried by the people, he said.

The significant dialogue took place in response to a request by Suu Kyi in her letter to U Thein Sein on Nov 11 after her party won a landslide in the Nov 8 general election.

The meeting came after her prior talks with U Shwe Mann, Speaker of the Union Parliament and House of Representatives (Lower House), on Nov 19, in which the pair agreed to place emphasis on national reconciliation and consolidation in forming parliament of the next term through coordination and cooperation.

Later on the day, Suu Kyi is also scheduled to meet Commander-in-Chief of the Defense Services Senior-General Min Aung Hlaing at her similar request.
