The article focuses on political conditions in Burma. On November 29, the opposition National League for Democracy said that it had received notification from the military government that its leader Aung San Suu Kyi, would remain under house arrest for at least another year. News of Suu Kyi's continued detention came a little over a month after Prime minister Khin Nyunt, was toppled and placed under house arrest. The military government has been at pains to stress that despite the removal of Khin Nyunt, it is continuing with its so-called "road map" to democracy.
