National league for the Democracy
The National league for the Democracy is a Burmese political party founded the September 27th 1988. It is carried out by Aung San Suu Kyi, which is the general secretary. During the legislative elections of Myanmar of 1990, the party gained 392 of 492 places, but the judgment of the military Junte (known in the past like SLORC, now known like the Peace of the state and the Council of Development SPDC (see Presidents de Myanmar) did not let the party form a government. Shortly after the election, the party was repressed, but several elected representatives have escaped with the arrests and formed the Coalition government main road for the union of Burma (NCGUB) continuing the fight for the Démocratie and the Liberté.
The NLD is distinct from the NLD it (National league for Democracy-of the Released Sectors), which functions in Thailand with the areas of the Burmese border and abroad. However, the NLD supports it the position of the NLD in its call to a tripartite dialog between the SPDC, the NLD, and the representatives of the groups of the ethnic minorities of Burma.
In 2001, the government made it possible branches of the office of NLD to reopen through Myanmar. However, they were closed or heavily limited beginning 2004, like part of a campaign of government to prohibit such activities. In 2006, much of members resigned of NLD, quoting the harassing and the pressure of the Tatmadaw (Armed forces) and the Union Solidarity and Development Association (USDA, militia of the mode).
Aung San Suu Kyi, general secretary of NLD and prize winner 1991 of the Nobel Prize of Peace, is assigned with supervised residence. The army maintained it in detention during 10 of the last 16 years. It is the single holder of the Nobel Prize in detention in the world today.
