Senator McConnell on the Burmese Elections

Washington, DC–(ENEWSPF)–November 7, 2010.  U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement Sunday regarding the elections in Burma:

“Although the Burmese junta will trumpet the theater performed today as an election — an exercise only the SPDC considers meaningful — November 7, 2010 will be just another day in Burma marked by government oppression and hardship for its people.  I urge President Obama to renew his support for Aung San Suu Kyi and democratic forces within Burma and work to ensure that elements of the international community are not tempted to recognize this mockery of the democratic process.”
