Myanmar’s ruling party claimed victory on Monday in a general election that marked another democratic milestone in the former military dictatorship but was overshadowed by the sidelining of minorities.

The National League for Democracy (NLD), which first came to power in 2015 and is led by Aung San Suu Kyi, said its unofficial count showed it had reached the 322-seat threshold needed to form a new government. The final results have yet to be announced by the election commission.
