National Unity Party


National Unity Party
   (NUP)
   Name of the Burma Socialist Programme Party (BSPP) after it lost its status as the only legal political party and was reorganized as a "democratic" party on September 26, 1988. Although many observers believed it would do well in the General Election of May 27, 1990 because of superior resources and connections, the NUP's leadership consisted of low-ranking cadres from the old BSPP, and the party was shunned by many voters because of its record of failure between 1962 and 1988. In the election, it won 21.2 percent of the popular vote and 10 seats. However, the NUP was included among parties represented on the National Convention, the constitution-drafting body convened in January 1993.
