Suu Kyi wins Myanmar election in landslide victory
09 November 2015, Nirapad News: Myanmar’s ruling party conceded defeat in the country’s general election on Monday, as the opposition led by democracy figurehead Aung San Suu Kyi appeared on course for a landslide victory that would ensure it can form the next government.
‘We lost,’ Union Solidarity and Development Party acting chairman Htay Oo told the media in an interview a day after the Southeast Asian country’s first free nationwide election in a quarter of a century, reports haaretz.com.
The election commission later began announcing constituency-by-constituency results from Sunday’s poll.
All of the first 12 announced were won by Suu Kyi’s National League of Democracy.
