Internal Unity Advisory Board

   Established in 1968 by Ne Win to draw up plans for Burma's future political system; consisted of 33 veteran political and ethnic minority leaders, who were ordered to submit their recommendations by May 31, 1969. The majority favored a return to the Constitution of 1947, with amendments and retention of the semifederal system; a minority called for a "national unity congress" (presumably to draft a new constitution) and establishment of a one-party socialist state. Former prime minister U Nu submitted his own recommendations: Because the March 1962 coup d'état that ended parliamentary government was illegal, the old parliament should be reconvened, and U Nu as prime minister would formally transfer power to Ne Win. U Nu also called for restoration of democratic freedoms. His proposals were rejected, and he left the country, assuming leadership of a Thailandbased antigovernment insurgency.
