...Well, this is about 45 seats out of more than 600 in the so called "Parliament". The generals are still in power, and so they have been for 60 years. We have to wait for the 2015 elections, then we will know if the bloody murderers really want democracy... (I don't trust them, not for a second, that's for sure!)
