Aung Shwe, U

   A leader of the National League for Democracy (NLD), who served as the party's acting chairman after the imprisonment of U Kyi Maung in September 1990. He joined the Burma Independence Army in 1942 and after independence rose to the rank of brigadier, though he was obliged to leave the military in 1962 and served in a number of ambassadorships, including Australia, Egypt, and France, before retiring in 1975. After the NLD was established in September 1988, he served as a member of its executive committee along with other veteran military officers, U Kyi Maung and U Lwin. Following Kyi Maung's arrest, Aung Shwe played the leading role in ensuring the NLD's survival until Daw Aung San Suu Kyi was released from house arrest in July 1995.
