Aung San Suu Kyi, the opposition leader in Myanmar, has reportedly won her seat in the national elections. The elections have been described as the country's most democratic ballot contest in 25 years. The National League for Democracy, of which Suu Kyi is the leader, has won 134 seats in the Lower House, 29 seats in the Upper House and 182 seats in the State/House Parliament.

Although she may be legally barred from assuming the country's presidency, Suu Kyi has said that would not prevent her from making "all the decisions," insisting that she would run the country regardless. "Above the president, I make all the decisions because I'm the leader of the winning party," she said Tuesday in an interview with Singapore's Channel NewsAsia.
