National Unity Front


National Unity Front
   (NUF)
   Established in 1955 as a coalition of the Burma Workers' and Peasants' Party and other groups; functioned as the principal opposition to the Anti-Fascist People's Freedom League (AFPFL) in the general election of 1956, winning 47 parliamentary seats and 37 percent of the popular vote. When the AFPFL split in 1958, the NUF supported U Nu's "Clean" faction. Most NUF leaders were jailed during the Caretaker Government period, and it failed to win any seats in the 1960 general election. However, some NUF leaders advised the Revolutionary Council after March 1962 and contributed to the "Burmese Road to Socialism" ideology. Like other political parties, it was banned by the Revolutionary Council in 1964.
