YANGON – Myanmar’s new Information Minister may allow private daily newspapers in the coming months, the government said yesterday, marking the boldest media reform yet, and meeting a central demand of advocates for press freedom.

The quasi-civilian government of President Thein Sein has liberalised media regulations since taking over from a military junta in March last year, abolishing direct censorship last month, but private groups are still not allowed to publish daily newspapers.
