Myanmar will go to the polls this Sunday, Nov. 8, to elect a new parliament. Credible elections will be crucial for the country's democratic transition. More important will be what the winners and losers do in the weeks afterwards.

     Not only will the future of Myanmar democracy hang in the balance, but also any prospects for political reconciliation, an end to decades of armed conflict, and a path to sustainable development.
