Real Change Under Myanmar's National League of Democracy?

Myanmar is set to hold elections this week, only the second semi-democratic elections the country has seen. However, the leader of the National League of Democracy (NLD), Aung San Suu Kyi, has come under fire for failing to address the Rohingya crisis, dashing hopes for her leadership. We speak to Kyaw Win, Executive Director of the Burma Human Rights Network, for his perspective of the NLD Government since they came into power in 2015, especially in their treatment of minority groups.
