Scepticism over Myanmar polls

Scepticism remains over fairness of upcoming Myanmar polls.

    One of the political events anticipated in 2010 is the elections promised by Myanmar's military government.

    The polls scheduled to take place later this year would be the first in decades.
     

    But while the military rulers say people will be allowed to have their say, many remain sceptical that the polls will pave the way to democracy and change.
