Bangalore: The politicians who strive for change in the world in order to make it a better place for others are precious. And their worth is expressed by honoring them with the Nobel Prize for their remarkable efforts in fighting for the rights of their people. The Nobel Prize is a set of international awards given for various categories by the Scandinavian committees for scientific and cultural endeavors. It’s named after a Swedish engineer Alfred Nobel. Here are the top 10 politicians who have been graced with the Nobel Prize, as per topyaps.com.



Aung San Suu Kyi
Aung San Suu Kyi is a Burmese opposition politician. She is also the chairperson of the National League for Democracy in Burma. She stayed under house arrest for 15 years and was released in 2010. In 1991 she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize while she was under house arrest, for her non-violent human rights struggle demanding democracy.  She did not accept the award until 2012 and delivered her Nobel acceptance speech two decades later. She mentioned in her speech that the Prize has given the people of Burma a new ray of hope.



Barack Obama
The 44th and current President of U.S. Barack Obama received the Nobel Prize in 2009 by the Norwegian Nobel Committee. He was awarded for his efforts in fostering cooperation between people and strengthening international diplomacy. Obama’s vision of a world without nuclear weapons was given the most importance.
