Myanmar's election commission has announced that opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi has won her seat in this weekend's parliamentary elections.

The commission announced 61 more results for Parliament's lower house on Wednesday, which included Suu Kyi's name as the winning representative from the Kawhmu constituency, which is part of Yangon state.

 It says she won 54,676 votes, without giving details for the losing ruling party candidate, or how many eligible voters there were.

Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy party is expected to score an overwhelming victory in the elections to choose a new Parliament.
