Fake 2010 Elections

Burma’s fake elections, held on 7 November 2010, were part of the dictatorship’s much-criticised “road-map to democracy” that has been condemned around the world as an attempt to entrench and legitimize military rule.

The entire process was a sham. The elections brought in a new constitution, which contains many undemocratic measures including the military having an effective veto over decisions made by the new Parliament and government. It was designed to keep the dictatorship in power and has not brought any new freedom to Burma’s people.
