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.”
