The Burmese authorities have just announced the results of the forthcoming General Election.

As expected, Prime Minister General Thein Sein will retain his position with a slightly increased majority, in fact the entire cabinet will secure their seats for another term although Energy Minister Lun Thi may have a sticky night as his seat is scheduled for a re-count which will eventually see him keeping his position by a narrow 312 votes.

After the results are officially sanctioned next Thursday there will be a huge national celebration during which millions of firecrackers will be let off to mask the noise of the firing squads dealing with people who voted for the opposition.
