London, Oct.1 (ANI): Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi will be released in November just days after the first election there in two decades, officials say.

The Nobel Peace laureate has been detained for most of the last 20 years since winning the country's last poll in 1990.

Suu Kyi will be freed when her current house arrest expires on November 13.

"November will be an important and busy month for us because of the election and because of Aung San Suu Kyi's release," a Burmese official said.

The official noted the release would come soon after the country's November 7 News quoted a second Burmese official, who also declined to be named, as confirming the date, adding: "She will be released on that day according to the law." (ANI)
