the courts should disolve all the parties for election fraud

Does that happen in your home country?

Politicians first priority, get elected.

Second priority get reelected.

Nothing ells mater to them.

Can't the parties just make a new coalition and form a new government.

 

If all the coalition partners support this scheme (and I don't belive they do) then they continue as they are.

 

The clocks ticking on this delicate coalition. What is it - 9 separate parties - it was doomed from the outset in my opinion - too many different parties.

The Thai government’s controversial plan to raise 500 billion baht through an off-budget loan for the digital wallet scheme has run into another roadblock.

Should have thought this all through before making the vote buying pledge.

Now in office they cannot afford to raise the money to fulfill their promise.

"The estimated cost of the scheme was around 560 billion baht."so it's going to cost 60 Billion Baht

to run the thing , seems like a lot of corruption just there.

 

regards Worgeordie

 

  From the article:

 

  "In November, the government revised the eligibility criteria and excluded those having monthly income of 70,000 baht and above, as well as those having bank deposits of 500,000 baht and above.

 

This reduced the number of people eligible for the handouts to 50 million from 54 million, lowering the estimated cost to around 500 billion baht from 560 billion baht."

 

So no, it's not designed to cost 60 billion THB to "run the thing".

"Government finds itself backed into a corner on digital wallet scheme" is a viable position than backed "against the wall" (my bold)

Analysis of the issues is more defined for the former having four dimensions and less defined for the latter having only two (or less) dimensions. 

The government should embrace the corner, engage the problems, collect the applicable economic data and determine the necessary legislative goals to deliver in an equitable, fair and accountable manner.
