YANGON: Opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi has requested meetings with Myanmar's military chief, the president and the chairman of parliament next week, apparently to discuss the formation of the new government following her party's massive electoral victory.

In similar letters to the three officials sent Wednesday, Suu Kyi said it is "very crucial that the government implements, for the pride of the country and the peaceful desire of people," the results of the Nov. 8 elections.

She says "based on the national reconciliation, we would want to meet" and have discussions next week.

Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy party is expected to win a massive victory in the parliamentary elections that will for the first time in more than a half century give the country a government not controlled or influenced by the military.
