Pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi is poised to win the byelection which is under way in Myanmar on Sunday.

The byelection is being closely monitored by the rest of the world, which is seen as a test of the newly rolled out reform measures by the military rulers.

Though skeptics rule out the fairness of the election, many others see an event-free voting to take place as it will help in lifting the US- and EU-imposed sanctions on Myanmar.

Suu kyi's National League for Democracy (NLD) and other opposition parties are taking on the military-backed ruling party in the byelections for a few vacant seats in the parliament.

It was not clear when the election results would be announced. The full result has been promised within one week, Reuters reported.
