Myanmar's main opposition party, the National League for Democracy (NLD) is set to be dissolved after it failed to re-register for the country's first general elections in two decades. The party, led by detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, said it chose not to meet the May 6 registration deadline in protest against newly implemented "undemocratic" election laws.The NLD said the upcoming vote was designed to keep the current government in power, and it pledged to carry on with its campaign even if the party "may cease to exist under law".
Al Jazeera's Aela Callan reports from the northern Thailand city of Chiang Mai, where she met exiled members of the party.
