Pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi says she hopes Sunday's by-elections marked the start of a new era in Burma.
Calling the polls a "triumph of the people", she said the goal now was reconciliation with other parties.
Official results for the polls that saw 45 seats contested are expected later this week.
But Ms Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy (NLD) said she easily won in her Kawhmu constituency, and that the party expects to win multiple seats.
Aung San Suu Kyi's comments came as she addressed a crowd of supporters outside NLD headquarters in Rangoon, Burma's commercial capital.
