Thailand pushes back elections AGAIN

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Thailand pushes back elections AGAIN

Post by phuketrichard »

I still think they wont ever be held again, ( at least until Thaksin dies)
as his party will win and everyone knows it, which means more civil unrest
BANGKOK — Thailand will hold a general election by May 5 next year, a deputy prime minister said on Monday, signaling the possibility of another delay of a vote that had tentatively been set for February.

The military has been running Thailand since a May 2014 coup, when it ousted the civilian government of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, citing the need to end street protests, and banned political activity in the name of peace and order.
It has promised to hold a general election but has repeatedly pushed back the date, most recently suggesting polls would be held by February 2019.
But Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam, citing a timeframe determined by constitutional stipulations and legislative steps, told reporters various dates were possible from Feb. 24, with the latest being May 5.

In a nation run by swine, all pigs are upward-mobile and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to win, but mainly to keep from losing completely. HST
