Myanmar's long-banned opposition on Sunday reappointed Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi as party leader at a landmark maiden congress, as it eyes victory in elections due in 2015.

The former political prisoner, who entered parliament last year, was unanimously selected as chairwoman by her National League for Democracy's 120-member Central Committee, a party source told AFP.
