ABSTRACT
The article discusses the 2010 election in Burma, which could be an opportunity for political change in the country, or an attempt by the military to hold onto power. Election supporters have urged the Burmese opposition to be pragmatic when working with the regime because they believe that the election will change the political landscape. Critics believe that a regime that didn't honor the previous election results can't be trusted. The trial of opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi is discussed.
