(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION)

Myanmar's election commission on Monday gave official approval for opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi to run in the upcoming elections in April.

The move is seen as a key step towards country's democratic reforms.

A crowd gathered outside to greet the pro-democracy leader after the announcement, in the Thanlyin township in Yangon.

While little has changed physically on Myanmar's rutted streets, the government has seen a dramatic transformation in the past six months.

Suu Kyi, a Noble Peace Laureate, is scheduled to go on the campaign trail on February 11.
