Myanmar's President since Independence
Myanmar's president from 1948 until today. Rangoon - Since British independence in 1948, Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) has been ruled by two kinds of president. Between the time after the dictatorship of Ne Win in March 1962 and the fall of the state, the nation had democratic states.
From this year until the end of the quasi-civilian regime in office from 2011-2016, consecutive generations of lieutenants hand-picked them under army command. However, with the investiture of President U Htin Kyaw in March 2016, the Myanmar population experienced the first ever civil reign in 54 years.
See Myanmar's president after the war. São Shwe Thaik, an ethnical Shan, was the first president of the Union of Myanmar and the last Saopha - or heir to the throne - of the Shan state of Yawnghwe. From Myanmar's liberation on 4 January 1948 until 12 March 1952, Sao Shwe Thaik was the Prime Minister U Nu and the leader of Myanmar.
Prior to becoming president, Sao Shwe Thaik had been serving in the UK Armed Forces. In 1962, when General Ne Win took over in a 1962 war putsch, the Shan Prinz was imprisoned. Dr. Ba U was the second president of the Union of Myanmar and an ethnical Bamar. After graduating from Cambridge University, Ba U was a senior judge at the Supreme Court of Myanmar before replacing Sao Shwe Thaik as president in March 1952.
For five years he was in this post, until March 1957. Reminder Win Maung was an ethnical Karen Buddhist and the third president of the Union of Myanmar. Former secretary of the federal administration, he was chosen by Prime Minster U Nu for the chairmanship and took over from Dr. Ba U in March 1957.
Warning Win Maung was in service until March 1962, when General Ne Win displaced the U Nu administration with a force uprising. Shu Maung, U Ne Win briefly took over Myanmar in 1958, during a reign of war known as the interim state. In March 1962, he came to office in a 1962 army putsch and was Myanmar's leader for almost 20 years, until November 9, 1981.
In 1962 he established the Burma Socialist Program Party (BSPP) as a Bamarosino-Muslim military commandant, of which he was president until 1988 and resigned during the university uprising. In all, U Ne Win stayed in command of the army for 26 years. General San Yu, also of Bamaro-Chinese origin, was the commander-in-chief of the Myanmar army and the fifth president of the then known as the Socialist Republic of the Union of Burma.
From November 1981 to July 1988, a year in which U Ne Win was still BSPP president. Prior to becoming president, General San Yu had an important part to play in drawing up the 1974 constitution of the war. Brigadier General Sein Lwin, an ethnical Bamar, was only 17 long serving as the 6th President of Myanmar during a era of intensive pro-democracy uprising.
According to reports, he was taken in by the administration and provided with automobiles, groceries and assistance for many years. Dr Maung Maung, an ethnical Bamar, was the 7th President of the Union of Myanmar and a well-known bamar. Mr. Becker graduated in Jurisprudence from the Dutch University of Utrecht and Yale University in the USA and worked as a senior judge under the BSPP administration of U Ne Win.
For only one whole period - from 19 August to 18 September 1988 - he was President before being displaced by a military putsch under the leadership of General Saw Maung. Myanmar's administration would change its name from the State Law and Order Restoration Council (SLORC) to the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC), headed by soldiers such as Senior General Than Shwe.
Until 2011 the state would not have another guide with the designation "President". The general political officer elected by the Union Parliament for the March 2011 presidential term became the 8th President of Myanmar after an NLD boycott and the West described him as "neither free nor fair".
" From 2007 to 2011 U Thein Sein was premier of the former army regim. He withdrew from the army in 2010, where he was ranked as a Brigad general, and instead chaired the military-backed Union Solidarity and Development Party. He relinquished his term as President of the State on 30 March 2016.
The current President U Htin Kyaw was borne in Yangon in 1946. He is one of the founder members of the NLD. Min Thuwun was voted into parliament in 1990 and U Htin Kyaw's father-in-law, U Lwin. Htin Kyaw was a director of the Daw Khin Kyi Foundation, a non-profit healthcare and educational organization whose name comes from the late Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's dam.
He is also an writer who is of both Mon and Burma's legacy and has written under the name Dala Ban, the name of a renowned Mon fighter elected by his sire. He will expire as President on 30 March 2021. U Win Myint became the 10th President of Myanmar with his investiture on Friday.
Parliament's President is the second leader appointed by the Daw Aung San Suu Kyi-led National League for Democracy (NLD) in two years after U Htin Kyaw suddenly resigned in the third March this year. The former president is one of the Council of State's associates.
The Union was also one of those responsible for poorly planned responses in Parliament. He has also on occasion caused difficulties for members of the armed forces in Parliament. U Win Myint, like many other activist and politician leaders, was repeatedly detained by the former state. Editor's note: This narrative was last rewritten on March 30 with President U Win Myint.
