Myanmar parliament votes to keep military veto

A vote in Myanmar's parliament has failed to remove the army's veto over constitutional change, dealing a blow to hopes for fuller democracy.

The bill received a majority of MPs' votes but not the 75% needed to pass.

Aung San Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy is expected to see big gains against the ruling party in an election likely to take place in the autumn.

The National League for Democracy swept the last free general election in 1990 but the then-ruling military junta ignored the results.

Suu Kyi is barred from running for president because her two sons hold British not Burmese passports - a ruling she says is unfair.
