Suu Kyi party wins


It looks as though the party of Aung San Suu Kyi, the National League for Democracy (NLD), has picked up all 44 seats it contested of the 45 seats holding by-elections yesterday.

The party has announced that they have won all their seats and that their leader scored more than 90% of the vote. The results are, however, unofficial announcements by the party. There has been no official statement so far from the government with official results not expected until later this week.
