The dialogue, on Myanmar's post-election government transition matters, took place in response to a request by Aung San Suu Kyi, the National League for Democracy (NLD) chairperson, in her letter to U Thein Sein on November 11 after her party won a landslide in the November 8 general election.

Details about their talks were not immediately available. The meeting came after her prior talks with U Shwe Mann, the parliament speaker, on November 19, in which they agreed to emphasise on national reconciliation and consolidation in forming parliament of the next term through coordination and cooperation.

Later in the day, Suu Kyi is scheduled to meet commander-in-chief of defence services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing.

Suu Kyi won as a representative re-elected to the house of representatives (lower house) of the next parliament. Under the constitution, Suu Kyi is prevented from becoming president due to her family status which involves foreign citizenship.

Despite possessing the rights and decision to nominate a president for the new term of government, the NLD has not yet disclosed the person selected for the presidency.
