National election in Burma/Myanmar

Burma flag

The polls have closed in Burma/Myanmar and now the country awaits the results of the national elections.

I was in Burma/Myanmar in 2013. It’s true there is increased optimism about the nation’s future as described in the Washington Post.

One note: The administrative capital is Nay Pyi Taw in the north. That’s home to President Thein Sein, Parliament and government ministries. That fact could have been added in parenthesis after the first reference to Rangoon/Yangon in this article.
