Arakanese National Unity Organisation

The Arakanese National Unity Organisation (ANUO) was a political party in Burma.



The party was established in 1955 by members of the Independent Arakanese Parliamentary Group, who held nine seats at the time.[1] In the 1956 elections it opposed the Anti-Fascist People's Freedom League and campaigned with the National United Front. Receiving 1% of the vote,[1] the party won six seats.[2] Prior to the 1960 elections it left the NUF and affiliated with the Clean AFPFL.[1] The elections saw it retain its six seats.[2]
