Aung San Suu Kyi steps back from two Myanmar ministerial jobs
Aung San Suu Kyi has reduced the number of ministries she will run in Myanmar's new government.
She will not now take over the education and energy portfolios, but will still be foreign minister and minister in the president's office.
Parliament has also proposed giving her the role of "state counsellor", a new position similar to prime minister.
Aung San Suu Kyi leads the National League for Democracy (NLD) that took power on Wednesday.
However she is constitutionally barred from becoming president, because of her children's foreign citizenship.
Two former civil servants have been nominated to take over the education and energy ministries, in place of Aung San Suu Kyi.
The BBC's Jonah Fisher says Myanmar's government ministries are extremely bureaucratic, with decisions usually requiring a ministerial signature.
Many had seen Ms Suu Kyi's move to take on four of the most important portfolios as too big a task, says our correspondent.
In scaling back her day-to-day responsibilities, she will be hoping to focus more on running the country and implementing much needed change, he adds.
