Clearing way to enter the parliament for democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi, her National League for Democracy (NLD) party clean swept the Sunday's by-election in Myanmar.
The pro-democratic party, NLD won 44 seats out of the 45 seats in the 664-seat Myanmar parliament.
"As far as we have heard from our sources, NLD candidates won in all 44 seats. I think the Election Commission will come up with official announcements soon," NLD campaign manager Nyan Win told Reuters.
It also reported that the victory claim was displayed in a large digital board outside the headquarters of NLD in Myanmar.
Thousands of pro-democratic supporters gathered at the NLD party headquarters, waving red flags and shouting slogans, "We Won! We Won!".
Meanwhile, amidst NLD's clean swept, the United States and European Union had hinted they could lift some sanctions - imposed over the past two decades in response to human rights abuses - if the election was free and fair.
After the Sunday election, the 66-year-old Nobel Peace Prize laureate issued a statement asking supporters to respect other parties.
"It is natural that the NLD members and their supporters are joyous at this point. However, it is necessary to avoid manners and actions that will make the other parties and members upset. It is very important that NLD members take special care that the success of the people is a dignified one," said Suu Kyi.
