A government is a government, either it be in exile or in power. Like any other governments which stay in position for nearly two decades, Burmaâ€™s exile government, or National Coalition Government of Union of Burma (NCGUB), has recently come under intense fire from almost all sides. NCGUB was first formed in 1990 soon after Burmaâ€™s one and only democratic general election in so many decades. It was formed by the decision of a secret meeting of elected peopleâ€™s representatives, which was held at a secret location outside Mandalay, the second largest city in Burma. As the National League for Democracy, led by Aung San Suu Kyi, won land-slide victory in 1990 election, their elected MPs at that time were urging military regime to start the process of handing over power. But the regime responded by putting NLD leaders behind bars.
