National Coalition Government of The Union of Burma

National Coalition Government of The Union of Burma
   A major opposition organization, which describes itself as "constituted by elected members of parliament in exile." Following the victory of the National League for Democracy (NLD) in the General Election of May 27, 1990, members of parliament, including those from other parties, met and issued the July 28 Gandhi Hall Declaration, calling for a speedy transfer of power. This was in response to the State Law and Order Restoration Council's issuance of SLORC Announcement 1/90 on the previous day, declaring that only it had the right to exercise legislative, executive, and judicial authority. Subsequently, plans were made to arrange the convening of parliament in Mandalay, but a wave of arrests of key NLD leaders, including U Kyi Maung, persuaded NLD parliamentarians still at large to endorse a provisional government in Burma's border areas. Thus, the NCGUB was established on December 18, 1990, at Manerplaw, headquarters of both the Karen National Union and Democratic Alliance of Burma, with Dr. Sein Win, a cousin of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, serving as prime minister. In 2005, the NCGUB had its headquarters in Washington, D.C., and played a primarily formal and informational role, for example, publishing a Human Rights Yearbook.
