Soe Win

   Lieutenant general, commander of the Air Force, and First Secretary (Secretary-1) of the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC). Following the purge of Khin Nyunt in October 2004, he was also appointed Burma's prime minister. A graduate of the 12th class of the Defence Services Academy, he rose to the position of SPDC Secretary-2 in February 2003 as successor to LieutenantGeneral Tin Oo, who died in a helicopter crash in Karen (Kayin) State on February 19, 2001. On August 25, 2003, he replaced Khin Nyunt as Secretary-1. He is close to Senior General Than Shwe and is a hard-liner, refusing to compromise with the democratic opposition. He reportedly ordered troops to fire on protesters during the Rangoon General Hospital Incident in August 1988 and was also partly responsible for the "Black Friday" Incident in May 2003.
