’’Ne Win’s Burma - After Ne Win’’: Many people may resent this title claiming that the "era after Ne Win" has not begun as yet because the now probably 71-year-old U Ne Win may have stepped down as President of State but still retains the (more?) powerful position of Chairman of the Burma Socialist Programme Party (BSPP), the one and only legitimate party in the Socialist Republic of the Union of Burma. There are good reasons in such a claim. Nevertheless, I think that the era after Ne Win has eventually started with Ne Win retiring from day-to-day politics and that there is a good chance that the transition of power may be as smooth as Ne Win expects it to occur.
