Mizzima’s Election 2010 website tracks developments related to the elections both inside and outside the country and provides a comprehensive background to Burma’s transition process.

Burma’s election on November 7th 2010 is the first in 20 years and marks a critical turning point in the country’s political transition from a caretaker military government to a democracy. Whether this will bring about real democratic change remains a deep concern, and the direction that Burma will take remains highly unpredictable.
