Myanmar Vote Has Aung San Suu Kyi’s Party Confident of Many Seats

Results were still being tabulated on Monday, but a number of powerful members of the military establishment in Myanmar conceded defeat, including former senior military officers who were among the most prominent members of the ruling party.
