Poltical Situtation in Kachin State (1948 – 1962)
- After Independence in 1948, AFPFL, PECDO and KNC, the strongest political forces in Kachin State, formed the first parliamentary government with Duwa Zau Rip as president of Kachin State Council. Between 1948 and 1962, political process of Kachin State at the time was a said story of conflicts, internal strives, split and upheavals. Therefore, this paper details how the political situation of Kachin State came to play in Parliamentary Democracy. Political arena of Kachin State was expounded in this paper, showing void of principle and policy on the part of all political parties and organizations, who fervently engaged in political infighting, holding sectarianism, factionalism and subjectivism and so on. And then, I intend to present how the politic of Kachin State was based on personality, ideology and authority and in other words, personality cult, subjectivism, sectarianism and dogmatism. As the Parliamentary Era of Myanmar was so full of split stories, so do that of Kachin territory, full of schism and machination.
