(Not So) Fun Fact: The Painful State of Burmese Democracy

Fun facts about Burma

In the Asian country of Burma (also known as Myanmar), the country had been ruled by a military dictatorship known as the junta since a coup in 1962. It seemed that the military junta gave in to democracy in 1990 by giving other parties the chance to have power. A woman named Aung San Suu Kyi led a pro-democracy party to win a super-majority in that election. The military-junta ignored the results, so instead of becoming Prime Minister, Aung San Suu Kyi was eventually put under house arrest.
