world Updated: Mar 14, 2012 00:40 IST

Internet users have gotten a sneak preview of Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi's first-ever campaign speech for state television.

A video posted on several sites, including Facebook and YouTube, shows the Nobel laureate proclaiming her National League for Democracy's party platform ahead of April 1 by-elections for 48 parliamentary seats.

All 17 parties running have been given 15-minute slots on state television to promote their polices. The NLD statement, taped on Monday and leaked the same day, is scheduled to be broadcast tomorrow and on March 22.

Suu Kyi in her broadcast repeated her campaign theme of undoing the repressive measures of past military regimes to make the country more democratic.
