Battle between Thammanat and coalition govt has no losers (except voters): analysts

By Thai PBS World’s Political Desk

 

Thailand-politics-drama_web.jpg

 

Palang Pracharath Party’s move to expel secretary-general Thammanat Prompao and 20 other MPs under his control is more of a political soap opera than an actual split, analysts say. It’s a win-win game for all involved – while voters get nothing, they add.

Party leader: Thailand could be losing trillions of baht each year because of its gambling laws

by Carla Boonkong & Pranee O' Connor

 

thailand-losing-trillions-over-gambling-ban.jpg

Thai Local Power Party leader and member of the House of Representatives, Chutchawan Kong-u-dom, came out this week, arguing passionately for the liberalisation of Thailand’s gambling laws. He is campaigning for a change to include casinos designed to enhance the foreign tourism trade and usher in a more open regime to include online gambling. Mr Chutchawan said he fears that the kingdom could be losing trillions of baht every year and consequently exporting jobs.

 

In the last week, Mr Chutchawan Kong-u-dom has highlighted the economic imperative of liberalising Thailand’s gambling laws dominated by the 1935 Gambling Act to allow for casinos in selected tourist hubs. He is also calling for an opening up to online gambling saying the kingdom cannot afford to lose financial capital that is flowing out of the country which could amount to trillions of baht.

For those caught by surprise at last week’s column appearing early, join the club! It’s a permanent feature now meaning that Christians will not be tempted by the snake that is Rooster, possibly missing Sunday church, while the rest of us Pagans can enjoy a decent laugh a day  earlier.
