Party for National Democracy

The Party for National Democracy (Burmese: အမျိုးသားဒီမိုကရေစီပါတီ; PND) was a political party in Myanmar.

HistoryEdit

Following the reintroduction of multi-party democracy after the 8888 Uprising, the Party for National Democracy was established in 1988.[1] It contested three seats in the 1990 general elections,[2] receiving 0.55% of the vote and winning all three seats; Sein Win in Paukkhaung, U Soe Win in Bago 1 and U Thein Oo in Oktwin 1.[3]

The party was banned by the military government on 20 December 1990 after it accused Sein Win of establishing a parallel government.[3]
