Members of Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy (NLD) party gather outside a venue for their first ever congress of the party at Royal Rose restaurant in Yangon, Myanmar, Saturday, March. 9, 2013. The NLD is holding an all-party congress to elect its own leadership for the first time in the group's 25-year history— an important step toward making it more reflective of its democratic ideals. It is a sign of how far Myanmar has come with political reform that the gathering is allowed at all. But it's also a test for the NLD, which is working to transform itself from a party of one into a structurally viable political opposition in time for national elections in 2015.
