Aung San Suu Kyi Wins a Seat in Paliament

Despite allegations of "rampant irregularities", it looks as though that the 66-year-old Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Aung San Suu Kyi, who had been kept imprisoned in her lakeside home for nearly two decades, has won a parliamentary seat in Myanmars’s landmark election.

The results, however, must be confirmed by the government’s official electoral commission, which may not make an official declaration for days. Stay tuned.
