According to the latest results from Myanmar's election commission, Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi's opposition party needs just three more seats to acquire a majority in the 664-member, two-house Parliament.

Elections were not held in seven constituencies meaning a simple majority can be reached at 329 seats.

Suu Kyi's party has won 243 seats in the lower house and 83 in the upper house for a total of 326.

More results are to be announced Thursday afternoon.

The military establishment has not formally conceded defeat but it has acknowledged the massive success of Suu Kyi's party, and ensured that it will respect the final outcome of last Sunday's elections.
