Parliamentary Democracy Party

   Established in August 1969 by former prime minister U Nu after he went into exile and including other prominent political figures, such as Bo Let Ya, Bohmu Aung, and Bo Yan Naing. The PDP's armed wing, the Patriotic Liberation Army, operated an insurgency along the Thai-Burma border, commanded by Bo Let Ya. In 1970, it formed a united front with three noncommunist, ethnic minority movements (the Karen National Union, the Chin Democracy Party, and the New Mon State Army), known as the National United Front. However, the movement fell apart after U Nu quit as PDP president in 1973 and left for India.
