Myanmar elections: Aung San Suu Kyi wins seat in parliament
A turning point in a democratically-repressed country? With an unofficial vote count having her at 82 percent, the Nobel Laureate, who spent most of the past two decades under house arrest, is likely to find herself on the other side of the political process. Her party, the National League for Democracy, also says it won 10 other seats in the contest. The election, however, did not come without hitches — with allegations of harassment and vote-tampering reported. The military government hopes, however, that the relatively minor instances will convince Western governments to cut back on economic sanctions that have long crippled the country. Is this the point where things change for the better in Myanmar? Or is it more complicated than that? (photo by Barbara Walton/EPA)
