Myanmar's election results

Here is the latest info from the BBC on Myanmar election:
Myanmar's opposition National League for Democracy says it is confident of victory in the first openly contested national election in 25 years.
An NLD spokesman said it expected to win about 70% of seats. Party leader Aung San Suu Kyi said: "I think you all have the idea of the results."
Official results have been released for just 12 seats, all won by the NLD.
The military-backed Union Solidarity Development Party (USDP) has been in power since 2011.
"We are on track to win more than 70% of seats around the country, but the election commission has not officially confirmed yet," NLD spokesman Win Htein told AFP news agency. The 12 seats announced so far are all in Yangon.
The acting chairman of the USDP has told BBC Burmese that he has lost his own seat in the constituency of Hinthada to the NLD - seen as a key indicator of election results.
In spite of such victories for the NLD and loss for the ruling USDP, without the full count and announcement it is too premature to call it a win for Suu Kyi now.
