Maung Aye, General

   (1940- )
   Vice chairman of the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC), he graduated with the first class of the Defence Services Academy in 1959. During the 1980s, he served as head of Regional Military Commands and became deputy commander in chief of the Tatmadaw in 1993 and vice chairman of the State Law and Order Restoration Council in 1994, holding the same position under the SPDC when it was established in 1997. Compared to the relatively "moderate" Khin Nyunt, he is considered a hard-liner, but in the opening years of the 21st century, he appeared to be losing influence because he was not especially close to SPDC Chairman Than Shwe. It is unclear whether the purge of Khin Nyunt in October 2004 has resulted in an enhancement of his power and influence within the junta.
