SUMMARY

Founded: 2009

Headquarters: Laybwer camp, near Homong, Southern Shan State

Operational Area: Hsi Hseng, Hopong, Nam San, Lan Khur and Mawk Mai in Shan State

Estimated strength: 400+

Leader: Khun Myint Tun

The PNLO is the combined force of the Pa-Oh People's Liberation Organization (PPLO) and the former PNLO. The PPLO was led by Col. Khun Okkar and formed on June 18, 1991 to continue the armed struggle after its mother organisation Pa-Oh National Organization (PNO) led by U Aung Kham Hti, signed a ceasefire with the government. The former PNLO was a SNPLO splinter group (Shan State Nationalities People's Liberation Organization) led by Brig. Gen. Khun Ti Soung and formed on June 10, 2007.

The two groups were officially united at a Pa-Oh National Conference held on Dec 7-9, 2009 that formed the newly structured PNLA and PNLO, and drafted the PNLO constitution. Attendees included the Pa-Oh Youth Organization, Pa-Oh Labor Union and individuals such as U Khun Myint Tun (Thaton MP in 1990 election) and Khun Tin Swe (member of NCUB and PDC). Col. Khun Okker was elected as the chairman, and Brig. Gen. Khun Ti Soung as vice-chairman. The conference chose the name PNLO to honor the former PNLO’s initiation and commitment to the “third revolution”.

The first PNLO congress held in Laybwer military camp on May 16-20, 2013 elected new central committee members in which Khun Myint Tun was appointed the new chairman. Previous chairmen Col. Khun Okker and Brig. Gen. Khun Ti Soung have since become patrons.
