This week, the party will focus on appointing parliamentary speakers, who were announced last week. It will also prepare for the start of state and regional assemblies on Feb.8, some in places dominated by large ethnic minorities such as Shan State in the east or Rakhine in the west.
Each of the parliament's two chambers will appoint its presidential candidate and the military officials who hold a quarter of seats will put forward their nominee. Combined chambers will then vote on the candidates. The winner will become president. The other two will serve as vice presidents.
Myanmar's 51.5 million people expect the NLD to quickly fix everything, including stopping the abuse of the Rohingya Muslims and bringing peace to a country marked by ethnic strife.
The military-backed government signed a peace pact with more than dozen smaller ethnic armies before the elections but major groups have stayed away, and fighting continues in many states. Most are fighting for autonomy and rights over their resource-rich land.
"I hope this will be a good opportunity for us to speak out for the ethnic people and demand indigenous rights," said Lama Naw Aung, a lower house member from the Kachin State Democracy Party, representing the Kachin minority who are engaged in ongoing battles with the army in the east of the country.
"They (people) hope that every problem will be solved automatically after the NLD becomes the government, FDI will come in," said Shwe Mann, the outgoing speaker of parliament who is close to Suu Kyi, referring to foreign investment.
But under the 2008 constitution, she is barred from the presidency because the constitution prohibits people with a foreign spouse or children from holding the office; her late husband was British, and their two sons hold British passports.
Suu Kyi has given no indication as to who will take over from the outgoing and the NLD has no clear number two.
Before the November vote, Suu Kyi said "I will be above the president. It's a very simple message. … "The constitution says nothing about being 'above the president."'
The NLD has not explained how she will do this.
"To accomplish the challenges, they need to choose the right people and put them in right positions," said Shwe Mann. "This is also my main concern, because it will decide the performance of her government."
