Aung San Suu Kyi storms into Myanmar Parliament

By– Staff Reporter | Date– April 01, 2012

Pro-democratic leader of Myanmar and Nobel Peace Prize Winner Aung San Suu Kyi will storm into this Country’s parliament. Although official reports are not declared yet, the preliminary results clearly displayed she was well ahead of her opposition in city, Yangon.

The opposition party in Myanmar has claimed Aung San Suu Kyi has won a seat in parliament after Sunday’s election. Supporters of Aung San Suu Kyi has erupted in euphoric cheers already across the country.

A victory for Suu Kyi marks a remarkable transformation for the 66-year-old icon of the pro-democracy movement, who spent most of the past 22 years locked up by the Military Junta as a prisoner in her own home.

Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy (NLD) party had swept to a landslide election victory in 1990 but the Military rulers of the country never recognized the results. This time, her party is contesting 44 of the 45 seats in Sunday’s vote.
