Myanmar: Aung San Suu Kyi gains absolute electoral majorities | World News

Myanmar's groundbreaking elections were won by Aung San Suu Kyi, who won an overwhelming parliamentary vote that ended half a centurys domination of the army and gave the icon of a decades-old democratic struggle a reign. Naypyidaw's Naypyidaw electoral committee said the National League for Democracy has won 348 lower and higher houses, 19 more than the 329 needed for an absolutite majority.

The last table shows that the military-backed Union Solidarity and Development Partie ( "USDP") has only 40 members in both houses. Minderheitenparteien won a handfull of other places. At only 83% of the results released so far this past weekend, the NLD's overwhelming share is expected to continue to soar.

Though Aung San Suu Kyi is excluded from the chairmanship under an army-drafted draft bill, her political group will now be able to enforce laws, build a cabinet and elect a presiden. The NLD's Aung San Suu Kyi, who has been under detention for years, said a victory for the NLD would put her "above the president".

A NLD regime would be the first since the early 1960', mostly under armed rule, no longer elected by the country's armed establishm. Present commanders and soldiers have indicated that they will acknowledge the resounding failure and eradicate the fear of a re-run of the 1990 elections.

This survey was won by Aung San Suu Kyi, but the results were immediately cancelled and her fellow members arrested. On Wednesday, the president's spokesperson said the administration would follow the results and work to transmit authority in a peaceful manner after congratulating Aung San Suu Kyi. Myanmar Commander-in-Chief Min Aung Hlaing also congratulated.

The Aung San Suu Kyi has no full powers and the military general, who has accumulated millions of US dollar in riches, will still oversee the most influential ministries - domestic, defense and frontier issues. Myanmar's military, or Tatmadaw, also has a fourth of the parliamentary seat, which means that the opposition had to gain at least 329 to form the 67% of the two homes.

U.S. US President Barack Obama phoned Suu Kyi to compliment her and her political group on the success of the initiative and also talked to US Prime Minister Thein Sein to praise him for the historical surveys, the White House said. Mr Aung San Suu Kyi has asked the Head of the Armed Forces, the Chairman and the Parliament spokeswoman to debate the elections and has said that she will be forming a coalition to bring about domestic peace.

Apart from the 25% of those reserved for the army, there were 168 controversial high-ranking and 330 lower chamber members, although seven of those members of the lower chamber were removed for battles with rebel groups in frontier areas. This is a 491 places in both of them.
