Myanmar opposition secures 536 parliamentary seats

Yangon: Myanmar’s opposition party, Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy (NLD), has so far secured 536 parliamentary seats in the country’s general election.

Of the 536 seats, 179 are in the House of Representatives (Lower House), 77 in the House of Nationalities (Upper House) and 280 in the Region or State Parliament, according to the Union Election Commission (UEC), reported Xinhua news agency.

The ruling Union Solidarity and Development Party had a total of 51 seats, including 17 in the Lower House, four in the Upper House and 30 in the Region or State Parliament.

The UEC has so far announced 627 elected parliament representatives. The election result will continue to be released by the UEC on a daily basis.

The UEC on Wednesday announced that Suu Kyi had won the general election and was re-elected as a representative to the House of Representatives of the next parliament.

The NLD said in a press release on Wednesday that Myanmar President U Thein Sein had offered congratulations on the party’s success in polls.

Suu Kyi on Wednesday called for a meeting with President U Thein Sein, Parliament Speaker U Shwe Mann and Commander-in-Chief of the Defense Services Senior-General Min Aung Hlaing for holding dialogue next week.

In her separate letters to the three ruling figures, Suu Kyi said the dialogue aimed to peacefully satisfy the desire of the people expressed through Sunday’s general election.
