However, Suu Kyi's party still wants to change several clauses in the constitution. Some give the military enough unelected seats in parliament to effectively bar constitutional change.
Another bars anyone from the presidency whose parent, spouse or child enjoys the privileges of being the citizen of another country. Suu Kyi's late husband was British and the couple had two sons, who live outside of Myanmar.
Even though Suu Kyi's party holds only a small number of seats in parliament, she said she believes that other lawmakers may also be agreeable to the changes, noting that "parliament has more democracy than I expected."
"To amend the constitution has been one of our policies since we ran in the by-elections. We will keep trying to amend it — not only for me to be president, we will also amend other things," she said.
