Despite being banned by law from becoming president, Myanmar's opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi says if she wins this weekend's elections she will rule "above the president".
If the polls are right, her National League for Democracy will win the first openly contested vote in 25 years in Myanmar, also known as Burma.
Suu Kyi has always put her country first, and now her country is about to return the favour. She and her party are poised for victory.
But as usual, there is an obstacle in Suu Kyi's way – constitution barring her from being president.
Today she vowed to lead Myanmar nonetheless.
"The constitution says nothing about somebody being 'above' the president," Suu Kyi says.
It would sound arrogant coming from someone other than this heroine of democracy, who believes she will get a mandate to break the shackles and intends to be ruler of Myanmar in all but name.
"I've already made plans," she says.
Repeatedly today Suu Kyi was scathing about the generals who have been in charge for years, who with an iron fist made Myanmar one of the poorest places on Earth.
