Thein Pe Myint, Thakin

   A leading left-wing politician. During World War II, he resided in India, where he coordinated anti-Japanese resistance inside Burma with the backing of the British. Although elected secretary general of the Communist Party of Burma in 1945, he did not follow the CPB mainstream when it went underground in March 1948. Active in legal left-wing parties, in 1956 he became a member of parliament representing the National Unity Front. After 1962, he advised the Revolutionary Council of General Ne Win and became a member of the Burma Socialist Programme Party. He is also well known for his short stories, novels, and political memoirs.
