- 58 Downloads
Nearly six years after the 1990 elections, Burma’s military rulers continue to refuse to seat the People’s Assembly elected in 1990. A constitutiondrafting exercise, known as the National Convention, stands as the response of the military junta, called the State Law and Order Restoration Council (SLORC), to the 1990 landslide election victory of the National League for Democracy (NLD). The National Convention, now in its fourth year, was conceived by the SLORC as a mechanism to draft a new constitution for the country in accordance with military wishes.
