Tun Tun Hein (Burmese: ထွန်းထွန်းဟိန်, also known as Tun Aung ; born 30 April 1949) is a Burmese politician and former Deputy Speaker of the Pyithu Hluttaw, the lower house of the Myanmar parliament. He also serves as a member of the National League for Democracy's (NLD) Central Executive Committee and heads NLD's voter list review committee.[1][2]

Tun Tun Hein was born to parents Kya Hein and Mya Khin.[2] A native of Zipingyi village in Pyinoolwin Township, he graduated from the Mandalay Arts and Science University with a B.Sc. in zoology in 1968.[2]


Tun Aung subsequently became a teacher in Kunlong from 1973 to 1974, and married Sein Sein Thein in 1973.[2][3] He was arrested in September 1988 for serving as chairman for the Nawnghkio Township General Strike Committee.[3] Tun Tun Hein won the seat in the Pyithu Hluttaw to represent the Nawnghkio Township constituency during the 1990 Burmese general election, winning about 57% of the votes (18,886 valid votes), but was never allowed to assume his seat.[3][4]

Tun Tun Hein was imprisoned in 2012 and was declared a prisoner of conscience by Amnesty International. He was released in January 2015.[5] In 2015 election, he contested and won the Nawnghkio Township constituency for a seat in the country's lower house.
