On November 8, Myanmar is due to hold its first general elections since the most recent round of political and economic reforms. Many agree that the elections will mark a significant milestone in the history of the country, which was governed by military rule and isolated from the international community until 2011. However, important question marks remain.
Will the general elections represent a definitive step in the country’s transition towards democracy? What is at stake for the future of Myanmar and its people?
