Between 1962 and 2011, the land was governed by a powerful army junt. Its name was modified in 1989 by the reigning army regime, recognised by the United Nations. A number of governmental bodies, including Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States and a large part of the people of Burma, do not recognise this name shift because they do not recognise the army rule.
In spite of multi-party ballots in 1990, in which the most important opponent won a crucial win, the army junta declined to surrender it. After a parliamentary vote in 2010, the army june was disbanded in 2011 and a civil administration was established. Aung San Suu Kyi, head of the National League for Democracy of Myanmar since April 2016, is the current councillor of state and has played an important part in the administration, but her impact is rather slack.
Since March 29, 2011, when the Burmese army passed control, the Burmese state has been governed by a nominal civil state. However, the army will retain significant powers in the administration and parliaments. March 2016 saw the first democratic election of the regime after more than fifty years of violent war.
