A presidential spokesman congratulated the NLD on its success, but said a meeting could only take place after the final results were announced.
In comments to the BBC, presidential spokesman U Ye Htut said President Thein Sein wanted to congratulate the NLD, and denied there was any attempt to delay the declaration of
Myanmar’s historic election
The ruling military-backed Union Solidarity Development Party (USDP) - which won the last, widely criticised election five years ago - is on some 5%, but a quarter of seats are reserved for the military.
The result is a humiliation for the governing party, says the BBC’s Jonathan Head in Yangon, also known as Rangoon.It is likely to leave the NLD in a commanding position in the next parliament, opposed only by the military faction, he says.
"A peaceful implementation of the people’s desire, which they expressed via the 8 November election, is very important for the country’s dignity and people’s peace of mind," she wrote in letters made public by the NLD, according to the Irrawaddy news website.Ms Suu Kyi earlier retained her own seat and will return as MP for her Kawhmu constituency in Rangoon - though she leads the NLD she is barred by the constitution from being president.But she has said "that won’t stop me from making all the decisions".
A quarter of the 664 parliamentary seats are set aside for the army. For the NLD to have the winning majority and be able to select the president, it will need at least two-thirds of the remaining seats - or 329.
