Aung San Suu Kyi ’s supporters celebrated at her National League for Democracy headquarter after the party announced she won.
Lawyer Daw Nwe Ni Aung says she believes the woman known affectionately as the lady will make life better in Burma when she enters parliament.
“I believe she will do the best things for the people. She will fulfill the requirements of the people who have suffered so much.”
Hotel worker Yamin says only Aung San Suu Kyi can meet Burma’s needs.
“I believe all things she said during her campaign. I believe she will do all that she said.”
Despite the early celebration from NLD supporters, there were allegations of voting irregularities. Ma Mee Mee is with a Civil Society Group monitoring the vote.
“All over the country, there are people who can not vote although they are registered. There are additional voters which are people who have voted twice. Faulty ballots make wax on them. Dead people who have voted.”
Aung San Suu Kyi and the NLD did not take part in the flawed 2010 election, as the military government that ruled Burma kept her under house arrest. But her release and the surprising reform from Burma’s military backed government raise hope that she could work toward democracy alongside those who for decades suppressed her.
