A senior member of Myanmar's ruling party said Tuesday they had "lost completely" to Aung San Suu Kyi's opposition, as a major election win for her democracy movement appeared within touching distance.

The drip feed of poll results pointed to a big win for her National League for Democracy (NLD), which has bagged 49 of the first 54 lower house seats announced so far.

The ruling Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP) was braced for a rout after taking just three of the declared seats, with many party heavyweights losing.
