Myanmar’s ruling party says it has lost the general election, with reports indicating a wide margin of victory to Aung San Suu Kyi’s opposition National League for Democracy (NLD).
That’ll be good news for the Burmese people hoping for a reduction in the suppression suffered for generations under military rule.
The Golden Land offers a lot especially if it’s people can be freed to grow.
