NCUB Applauds British Minister Bill Rammell for his criticism of Burma's 2010 sham elections

Bangkok, 04 February, ( The National Council of the Union of Burma (NCUB) applauds Britain’s Minister of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, Bill Rammell, for his strong criticism of the Burmese military junta, the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC). The NCUB implores other members of the international community to heed Bill Rammell's important message and reject the junta's sham and one-sided elections scheduled for 2010.

The NCUB calls on the international community to actively support the Burmese citizens who have suffered under the SPDC's brutal military regime for decades and reject the faux elections the junta is using to entrench military rule in Burma.

The junta continues to refuse to recognize the results of Burma's free and fair 1990 General Elections, in which the National League for Democracy (NLD) won a landslide victory, and it is going to use the 2010 sham elections to solidify its rule and create a civilian façade for it. Whatever the pretences, the SPDC is not moving toward democracy and, on the other hand, it continues to viciously violate basic democratic principles.

The SPDC must end its military attacks against ethnic population in Burma and begin a national reconciliation process with Burma's political stakeholders. As long as the junta continues to refuse a meaningful, time]bound political dialogue with Aung San Suu Kyi and the ethnic nationalities the international community must refuse to recognize the 2010 elections.
