Daw Suu Kyi and her party the NLD has been banned from running in the 2010 elections. This comes to no surprise to anyone, as we have known all along the so called “road map to democracy” has always been a sham and is under the tight puppetry of the Burma generals.
British Prime Minister Gordon Brown called for Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s release for the occasion of International Women’s Day.
Information Minister Brigadier General Kyaw Hsan has had bitter words for the UN and the international community to allow free and fair elections but maintains that everything will according to what has already been planned, adding
“We shall not accept any attempt to hinder or reverse the process of the seven-step road map. However, we will heartily welcome the positive suggestions of the UN to help implement the seven-step road map,”
He also continued to accuse Daw Suu Kyi of not living up to her part of the talks. According to the junta, meeting with Suu Kyi where supposed to be followed by her turning away from her support for sanctions against Burma. She hasn’t budged.
