Title: To Stand And Be Counted - The Suppression of Burma’s Members of Parliament
Date of publication: June 1998
Description/subject: "In May 1990 the people of Burma voted in the country’s first multi-party election in 30 years. The ruling military regime was forced to announce the election following nation-wide anti-government demonstrations in 1988 in which the army brutally gunned down thousands of protestors. Despite the State Law and Order Restoration Council (SLORC) imposing severe restrictions on campaigning for the election, and placing Daw Aung San Suu Kyi under house arrest, the SLORC-backed party won just two percent of the seats. The election result was a landslide to Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy (NLD), which won a staggering 81% of the seats. However following the election, the SLORC refused to hand over power and instead began a systematic campaign of repression against Members of Parliament (MPs) from the NLD and other opposition parties. Since the 1990 election, the SLORC, renamed the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC), has banned more than 80 political parties, forced from office more than a quarter of NLD MPs and jailed 78 MPs, more than 40 of whom remain in prison. 'To Stand And Be Counted: The Suppression of Burma’s Members of Parliament' examines the fate of Burma’s Members of Parliament elected to office in the May 1990 election. It includes 30 detailed tables, 16 maps and biographies of all 485 MPs. The book is an important reminder of the SLORC/SPDC’s brutal repudiation of political freedom in Burma, and of the sacrifices the elected representatives have made in the struggle for democracy and human rights."....."Contents: Foreword...

Thus, a democratic state was established in order to be liberated from the bitter experience of the society. 2. Now, a chance to establish a democratic system began to emerge that would totally change society. Hence, all the people of Burma, with active spirit and strong determination, would have to elect the peoples' representatives. Those representatives would form a democratic government in accordance with the aspiration of the people and draw up the state constitution that will enable a successful reconstruction of the country. 3. The National League for Democracy firmly believes that, today, in Burma, the masses of people are earnestly aspiring for the formation of a Democratic government that will guarantee basic human rights. 4. The National League for Democracy clearly understands that all the people of Burma are very keen to establish a firmly united "Union" in the near future with equal rights for all ethnic nationalities who cherish democracy. 5. In order to bring about the aims and aspirations of the people successfully, the National League for Democracy, consisting of people wishing to represent farmers, workers, merchants and entrepreneurs, students, youths, women, technicians, academicians, artists and ethnic nationalities, shall let their members participate in this multi-party General Election and pledges to accept the decision of the people. 6.
