NLD Claims 3 Seats in Naypyidaw

With ballots already counted at several polling stations, the NLD leads in three of the capital's four constituencies.


With ballots already counted at several polling stations in Naypyidaw, the opposition National League for Democracy (NLD) is close to victory in three of the capital’s four constituencies.

According to a local reporter, the NLD is well ahead in two constituencies—Pobba Thiri and Dakkina Thiri, led by candidates Zay Ya Thaw and Naing Ngan Lin respectively.

A third seat, in Zabu Thiri, is also likely to go to the NLD candidate Sandar Min, the reporter said.

In Naypyidaw’s fourth constituency, Ottara Thiri, indications are that USDP candidate Hla Thein Swe leads, with ballots still being counted.
