YANGON: Aung San Suu Kyi's ruling party swept to a landslide win in Myanmar's election, official results showed Friday, in a poll disputed by the military-aligned opposition and criticised by rights groups. Her National League for Democracy (NLD) had already declared the victory based on its own tallies, prompting street celebrations by supporters.

But official figures were still coming in five days after the ballot, only the second such polls since the nation emerged from outright military rule in 2011. Results announced by the election commission on Friday evening showed the NLD had won 396 seats - more than 60 percent of parliament, even taking into account the quarter of seats reserved for the military under the constitution.

On the 10th anniversary of Suu Kyi's release from house arrest under the junta, her party defied many forecasts by bettering its 2015 victory, despite widespread disillusionment in many ethnic-minority areas.
