Myanmar's opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi on Saturday called for her once-banned party to unify as it prepares for landmark 2015 polls, conceding there had been "some fighting" over party positions.

Speaking at the first congress of her National League for Democracy party, she said "the spirit of fraternity is very important", adding "there was some fighting" internally, which analysts say could undermine its push for power.
