I heard about the NCGUB, the D.C.-based Burmese government-in-exile, a couple years ago while I was doing some of my first reporting on that country. I always wanted to find an excuse to do story about them at some point.

Finally, with their counterparts in the National League for Democracy set to win seats in Myanmar’s April 1st parliamentary by-election, I realized the time was now or never. They’re planning to vote on whether to disband shortly after those elections.

Here’s the story:
