Naypyidaw to Launch New Daily Burma’s Ministry of Information plans to launch a new daily newspaper in January, according to sources in Naypyidaw.

As with other state-run newspapers published by the Ministry of Information, the new Burmese-language daily, which will reportedly be named “Nay Pyi Taw,” will cover the official routines of the country’s ruling generals and feature propaganda articles about the military regime.

“The coverage in this newspaper will not be much different from other state-owned publications,” a source close to the ministry told The Irrawaddy. “But it will focus more on news related to the 2010 election.”
