In a dramatic break from the past, Myanmar is undergoing significant political reform.
On November 7, 2010, the country held its first election in 20 years.
Though the election was neither free nor fair and Daw Aung San Suu Kyi was only released
from house arrest six days after the polls, reforms instituted following
President U Thein Sein’s inauguration in March 2011 have given the outside
world substantial reason for hope.
