The National Convention (preparations, procedures, proceedings, legislation, statements etc.)
The material for the sessions of the National Convention beginning 17 May 2004 is taken from the online versions of "The New Light of Myanmar". The files for the 1993-1996 sessions are extracted from Hugh MacDougall's "The Burma Press Summary" (BPS), 1987-1996 (for the complete BPS archive, click the link on this library's home page). The reports are transcribed or summarised from the SLORC and SPDC press, "The Working People's Daily" (WPD), re-named "The New Light of Myanmar" (NLM) in 1993. The record is therefore ultimately from SLORC and SPDC sources. It is incomplete and cannot be taken as entirely unbiased. However, there are many full text documents, including speeches and official announcements, which makes the archive extremely useful, and perhaps the only source for those who do not have access to the original newspapers. The "Reports on meetings of the National Convention Convening Commission" are from the SPDC website. There is a gap in the record from end 1996 when the BPS ceased, to early 1998. It is interesting to note that, apart from the reports of the statements by military leaders, the reports of the 2004 sessions are almost entirely lacking in substance (the bulk of the reporting is devoted to lists of names and organisations and what the general topic was, but no detail) whereas the reports of the sessions between 1993 and 1996 contain summaries and even full texts of the statements of the various delegates -- as well, of course, as full texts of the SLORC statements. The versions of the 2004 sessions in OBL have had the photos removed for speedier downloading. To see the very revealing photos, click on the Source at the foot of each report or group of reports.

Title: The standpoint of the Cease-fire Groups in relation to the National Convention
Date of publication: 11 May 2004
Description/subject: "Being convinced that political issues must be solved through political and not military processes, the ethnic nationality groups reached “cease fire” agreements with the current rulers in order that a true and genuine Union of Burma can be established through a change to a democratic system which will bring about unity, equal status and the right to self government that will be for the good of all the ethnic groups. As occasion and opportunities arise, we have declared this to be our standpoint to the current rulers and all the people of the nation ... we declare our position and stand with regard to the convening of this National Convention as hereunder:- 1. We need the right to revise the 6th objective of the convention which is not in accordance with the democratic system and not in keeping with the people’s wishes. 2. We need the right to revise the principles that do not conform to democratic principles in the stated 104 basic principles of the convention. 3. For the benefit of the Union, participants should have the right to seek advice and consult any person or association on any relevant issue during the period of the convention. 4. Delegates must have the right to freely consult their respective associations and seek their views during the period of the convention. 5. Elected representatives of the people in the 1990 elections must be permitted to attend the convention. 6. Delegates from ‘Cease-fire groups’ must be genuine. Cease-fire agreements with other groups should be entered into as soon as possible so that their delegates may attend the convention. 7. Law 5/96 dated the 7th June 1996 was intended to protect the 1993- 1996 National Convention. It is no longer relevant and should be abolished... Signed by: 1) Head of delegation to NC, Kachin Independence Organization (KIO); 2) Head of delegation to NC, New Mon State Party (NMSP); 3) Head of delegation to NC, Shan State National Army (SSNA); 4). Shan State Army (SSA); 5). Palaung State Liberation Organization (PSLO); 6). Kayan New Land Party (KNLP).
