Khin Maung Swe (Burmese: ခင်မောင်ဆွေ), 67, is the leader of the National Democratic Force (NDF) in Myanmar, after Dr. Than Nyein died in 2014. NDF is a political party formed by former members of detained pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi's disbanded National League for Democracy (NLD). After the NLD decided to boycott Burma's general elections in 2010, Khin Maung Swe and a few other leading NLD members created the new party to contest the controversial polls. His party won only 16 out of 161 parliamentary seats it contested With other democratic parties, NDF complained to the Burmese government of widespread vote rigging.[1]
