National Council of The Union of Burma


National Council of The Union of Burma
   (NCUB)
   Part of the Burmese government-in-exile, it is often confused with the National Coalition Government of the Union of Burma (NCGUB). The NCUB in principle functions as a parliament-in-exile, composed of members of the National League for Democracy-Liberated Areas (NLD-LA), the Members of Parliament Union (MPU), the Democratic Alliance of Burma (DAB), and the National Democratic Front. The NCGUB is the "government" or "cabinet" of the NCUB, headed by the prime minister, Dr. Sein Win, and is "responsible" to it. The NCUB has drafted a constitution and advocates the initiation of a "tripartite dialogue" involving the ethnic nationalities, the democratic forces led by Aung San Suu Kyi, and the military government to achieve political reconciliation.
