April 1, 2012 | Duration: 1 min, 48 sec
Supporters of Myanmar's Opposition icon Aung San Suu Kyi erupted in euphoric cheers on Sunday after her party said she won a parliamentary seat in a landmark election, setting the stage for her to take public office for the first time. NDTV captures the democracy moment in Myanmar. The victory, if confirmed, would mark a major milestone in the Southeast Asian nation, where the military has ruled almost exclusively for a half-century and where a new reform-minded government is seeking legitimacy and a lifting of Western sanctions.
