US denounces regime's constitutional plans

The Burmese junta's announcement that it will hold a referendum on a new constitution in May demonstrates "its lack of seriousness about an open and fair process for the restoration of democracy," said spokeswoman Dana Perino.

Perino cited news reports as saying Aung San Suu Kyi might be barred from running, and stressed: "The problem is not with the setting of a date for elections, but with a non-transparent and exclusive process."
