Yangon, March 7 (Xinhua) Myanmar Friday told the visiting UN special envoy Ibrahim Gambari that the draft constitution will not be amended and the government is committed to continue its seven-step roadmap to democracy. Brigadier-General Kyaw Hsan, a high-ranking officer of the Myanmar government, announced the decision after meeting Gambari, who is in Myanmar in a renewed effort for the country’s national reconciliation and democratic process.

Kyaw Hsan said Myanmar’s seven-step roadmap has reached its fourth step for holding a national referendum on the completed draft constitution and a multi-party democracy general election in 2010.

He said democracy could be restored within two years if pursued accordingly.
