ABSTRACT
Burma's newly appointed prime minister, General Khin Nyunt, has promised free-and-fair elections as part of a 'road map' to democracy. Khin Nyunt and his fellow generals are not about to hand power to a civilian government. But they are concerned by crippling sanctions imposed following the detention of pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi. International pressure on Burma's military junta following its detention, four months ago, of pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi may be beginning to tell. Khin Nyunt met with senior officials to announce a 'road map' to democracy. The National Convention would be recalled, he said, to begin drafting a new constitution that would lead to free-and-fair elections. Khin Nyunt's road map to democracy is mainly the result of mounting international pressure.
