Yangon - Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi has hinted at a victory for her party in historic elections, and is urging supporters not to provoke their rivals.

Her National League for Democracy party is expected to win Sunday's parliamentary elections, defeating the military-backed Union Solidarity Development Party.

In a speech Monday at the NLD headquarters, Suu Kyi said: "It is still a bit early to congratulate our candidates who will be the winners."

She said, "I want to remind you all that even candidates who didn't win have to accept the winners but it is important not to provoke the candidates who didn't win to make them feel bad."

She said the results won't be announced soon, "but I think you all have the idea of the results."
