Crowds swelled outside National League for Democracy (NLD) headquarters in Burma’s largest city Rangoon Monday evening, as jubilant supporters of Aung San Suu Kyi gathered under two big television screens to witness the results of Sunday’s historic elections, which the NLD is expected to win by a large majority.

Waving red flags emblazoned with the NLD’s iconic fighting-peacock motif, revelers of all ages — many with red bandanas around their foreheads and NLD stickers on their cheeks — danced away the hours, cheering every time results flashed a positive result for Suu Kyi and the NLD across the screens.

Famous Burmese singer Ni Ni Khin Zaw led the crowd with an anthem dedicated to the Lady, as Suu Kyi is fondly known.
