The Chin National League for Democracy (CNLD) is a political party in Myanmar seeking to represent the interests of the Chin people.


Following the reintroduction of multi-party democracy after the 8888 Uprising, the CNLD contested 13 seats in the 1990 general elections.[1] It received 0.4% of the vote, winning three seats:[2] U.C.K. Taikwell in Falam 1, Za Hlei Thang in Falam 2 and U Shein Pe Ling in Mindat.[3]

The party was banned by the military government on 18 March 1992, but was a member of the government-in-exile.[4]

The party did not contest the 2010 general elections.[5]
