Topic: Suu Kyi supporters confident of landslide win in Myanmar election


By Aung Hla Tun YANGON (Reuters) - Supporters of Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi were confident on Monday her party had won a landslide victory in the country's first free general election in 25 years, with the biggest question whether the margin was enough to claim the presidency. Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy (NLD) was expected to win the largest share of votes cast by an electorate of about 30 million who chose from thousands of candidates standing for parliament and regional assemblies. "We're leading the race but we can't say for sure we'll win two-thirds of the seats in Parliament that would enable us to form an independent government without forming a coalition," said NLD senior official and spokesman Han Tha Myint.
