ABSTRACT
The article reports on the political outlook of Burma. It states that Ibrahim Gambari, a Special Envoy of the United Nations (UN), employ a reclusive military junta for a greater degree of political freedom ahead of the 2010 elections. However, Business Monitor International (BMI) foresees no major results from UN's new gambit on political freedom, as the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC) of army generals use the 2010 elections to move its top leaders into civilian positions.
