Myanmar vote count begins on Suu Kyi's day of destiny

Myanmar opposition leader and head of the National League for Democracy (NLD) Aung San Suu Kyi (C) accepts flowers from her supporters as she visits a polling station in Kawhmu township, Yangon on November 8, 2015Millions voted Sunday in Myanmar’s historic election after a massive turnout that could catapult Aung San Suu Kyi’s pro-democracy party into power and finally end decades of military control. After a day marked by euphoric lines of voters — and a rock star welcome for Suu Kyi as she voted — the count began after polling stations shut at 4pm local time (0930 GMT). Early indications were of an “80 percent” turnout, according to Union Election Commission deputy director Thant Zin Aung — a figure the opposition will hope favours their bid for a majority.
