Burma / Myanmar: Maung Maung (11 January 1925 Ð 2 July 1994) was the 7th President of the Union of Myanmar, and a well-known writer.

Dr. Maung Maung served in a legal capacity in General Ne Win's caretaker government from 1958Ð1960. Following Ne Win's 1962 military coup, Maung Maung became Chief Justice and, although a civilian, was a prominent member of the central committee of the BSPP. He played a large part in shaping the 1974 constitution and subsequent changes to the judicial system. On 19 August 1988, amidst a series of large-scale demonstrations, the People's Assembly declared Maung Maung President and Chairman of the BSPP. Anti-government demonstrations continued and widespread disruptions resulted in another military coup led by Saw Maung on 18 September 1988. After his brief spell in power in 1988, Maung Maung disappeared from the public eye, although it was rumoured that he helped draft the election law governing the 1990 general election.
