History

The Union of Myanmar is a military regime. Elected delegates in the 1990 People's Assembly election formed the National Coalition Government of the Union of Burma (NCGUB), a government-in-exile since December 1990, with the mission of restoring democracy in Burma. [cite web|url=http://www.ncgub.net/NCGUB/index%20of%20NCGUB.htm |title= The Birth Of The NCGUB |accessdate=2006-07-19 |publisher=National Coalition Government of the Union of Burma] Dr. Sein Win, a first cousin of Aung San Suu Kyi, is the NCGUB's prime minister since its inception. The NCGUB has been outlawed by the military junta. The current de-facto Head of State is Senior General Than Shwe, who holds the posts of "Chairman of the State Peace and Development Council" and "Commander in Chief of the Defence Services". General Khin Nyunt was de-facto prime minister until 19 October 2004, during which he was replaced by General Soe Win, after the purge of Military Intelligence sections within Myanmar Armed Forces.

US and European government sanctions against the military regime, combined with consumer boycotts and shareholder pressure organized by Free Burma activists, have succeeded in forcing most western corporations to withdraw from Burma until they restore the NCGUB.Fact|date=February 2007
