Bangkok elections a harbinger of Prayut’s downfall?


Recommended Posts



Chadchart Sittipunt’s landslide victory at last Sunday’s governor election — with more than 1.38 million votes or over 50 percent of all ballots cast — was viewed by many as Bangkok voters’ verdict on the current coalition government and its junta predecessor, which came to power in the 2014 military coup.

The dinosaurs are busy rewriting laws, planning yet another constitution and searching for solutions on how to sink this latest evidence of people's unhappiness. 

On vera - as the French say - meanwhile I wonder, why the PM can sit longer than 8 years on his throne with a constitutional limitation of eight years - a constitution he was instrumental in crafting.

I see defamation cases, bans from politics and jail time in his future.
