Myanmar's pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi will help investigate charges of election fraud if and when she is released from house arrest this week, a close political colleague said on Wednesday.

Nyan Win, a spokesman for her National League for Democracy, said the group — which was officially disbanded as a political party but remains active - has established a committee to investigate charges of fraud in last Sunday's polls, the country's first in two decades.

Suu Kyi's party had boycotted the election, charging it was being held under unfair and undemocratic conditions.

The ruling military’s proxy party has said it won a sweeping victory, but critics accuse it of widespread vote-rigging.
