The National League for Democracy, was founded by Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and other leaders on 27, September 1988 after peaceful pro-democracy demonstrations nationwide. The National League for Democracy (Youth) was formed on 18 November 1988 under the leadership of U Tin Oo and Daw Aung Sun Suu Kyi, with 19 NLD’s youth members. And then all the members of NLD’s youth participated in the politic and organizational work of the NLD throughout the whole Country.
In the May 1990 general elections, the NLD won 82% of the seats contested, but the military junta did not transfer power and imprisoned several NLD members. So some of the veteran NLD leaders, elected MPs and youth leaders left and founded the NLD (LA)at Manerplaw on 14 February 1991. Today they are continuing to try to bring about the restoration of democracy and Human Rights in Burma. NLD-LA (Youth) was stablished on 7 July 1996. The Central Youth Working Group (Temporary) of NLD-LA Youth) was reformed on 16 December, 1996 in a joint meeting (3/96) of the Central Executive Committee and Central Youth Working Group of NLD-LA (Youth) held at its Headquarters.
