Aung San Suu Kyi said she trusted the Burmese president (BBC)

From the BBC earlier today.

Burma’s opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi says she believes Burma will hold democratic elections “in my lifetime”.

Of President Thein Sein, a former top general who stepped down to contest elections as a civilian, Ms Suu Kyi said: “I trust the president, but I can’t yet trust the government for the simple reason that I don’t yet know all the members of government.  The most important thing about the president is that he is an honest man… He is a man capable of taking risks if he thinks they are worthwhile.”
