The acting chairman of Myanmar’s ruling party said he’d accept the result of the nation ‘s first free national election and conceded defeat on Monday to Aung San Suu Kyi’s resistance.
The vote count continues to be under way with no results have been officially announced, but preliminary reports from around the nation suggest a wide margin of victory for Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy (NLD).”We must discover the reasons why we lost,” Htay Oo, a close ally of President Thein Sein said. “Yet, we do accept the results without the bookings. We still do not know the final results for sure.”
Htay Oo said the scale surprised him in his own parliamentary constituency in the delta area, considered the heartland.
“President wasn’t expecting it because we had the ability to do a lot for the people in this area.” he said. “Anyway, it’s the determination of individuals.”
