It's the historic moment she'd been waiting for all her political life. And today Aung Sang Suu Kyi entered parliament in Burma.

There's no question how important this day is to the people of Burma. The press mobbed her as she made her way towards the hallowed room where major players sit and make decisions about the country's future. A country which has been dogged by controversy about its previous unwillingness to accept democracy.

Aung Sang Suu Kyi had campaigned against Burma's military dictatorship for almost 25 years, she was put under house arrest for 15 years for her actions. And now after nearly 4 years of freedom and the recent empathetic win in the elections for the party she leads, the NLD (National League for Democracy), the 66-year-old Nobel Peace Prize laureate took the seat she'd earned the right to have in the Lower House and swore her oath.

And as she left Parliament she spoke to the press about her feelings on sitting alongside the military in the House.

Powerful words in exciting times for a country which is clearly taking tentative - yet hugely symbolic - steps towards a new dawn in its politics.
