Nay Pyi Taw :  Myanmar's House of Representatives (Lower House) on Friday elected U Htin Kyaw of the ruling National League for Democracy (NLD) as one of the three vice presidents to be submitted to the two-house parliament for presidential run after qualification scrutiny.

U Htin Kyaw won the vote against Sai Mauk Kham, nominated by the Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP), by 274-29.  U Htin Kyaw is a key aide of NLD chief Aung San Suu Kyi, he childhood friend who helps her run her charitable foundation in Myanmar. For a while he also worked as her driver.

Since Myanmar's new Constitution bars Suu Kyi from contesting the presidential poll because she married a British national, she has put up U Htin Kyaw as the ruling NLD's presidential candidate, who is likely to win.  (IANS)
