Aung San Suu Kyi's opposition party has won 80% of the votes counted in the central regions so far in the Burmese general election, according to a party spokesman.
Outside the central area, the National League for Democracy had so far won more than 65% of votes cast in the states of Mon and Kayin, NLD spokesman Win Htein said. .
Aung San Suu Kyi's opposition party is on course for a landslide victory in Burma's most democratic election for decades.
The party of Nobel peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi is expected to prove popular, but may still face an uphill struggle in parliament.
Aung San Suu Kyi always chooses words carefully and as she uttered one sentence it emphatically sounded like a gauntlet being thrown down.
