Democratic Party for a New Society


Democratic Party for a New Society
   (DPNS
   Part of the student movement that emerged during 1988, established as a legal political party on October 14, 1988, after the State Law and Order Restoration Council (SLORC) seized power. In 1988-1989, the DPNS organized branches in 250 of Burma's townships and claimed a membership of 250,000. Seeking support from students and young people, it did not put up its own candidates for the General Election of May 27, 1990, but rather backed the National League for Democracy. The SLORC arrested most of its leaders; since the early 1990s, its activities have been concentrated in the border areas. It is a member of the Democratic Alliance of Burma.
