    Thailand : Democrats could face dissolution: EC

    Democrats could face dissolution: EC
    Tuesday December 16, 2008 10:34

    The Puea Thai party filed a complaint with the Election Commission (EC) against the Democrat party after its leader and newly elected prime minister Abhisit Vejjajiva appeared to team up with banned politician Newin Chidchob.

    EC member Prapun Naigowit, referring to the Puea Thai's petition, said the photograph of Mr Abhisit hugging with Mr Newin in an attempt to get more MPs to help the Democrat party set up the new administration could violate articles 96 and 98 of the constitution.

    The petition could lead to the dissolution of the Democrat party, the commissioner noted.

    The EC earlier considered the case alleging that the People Power party was a proxy of the court-dissolved Thai Rak Thai party. However, there were no laws covering the nominee case.

    it still does seem like a thin case, and the Democrats are hardly a proxy for the Newin

    I think it's time to ban all the PPP members once and for all, maybe even deport them to political camps to re-educated them

    Three of the most heartbreaking pictures of Abhisit.

    I've met him, heard him speak several times, had hopes for him.

    To get power you have to have some very nasty bed fellows in this country.

    He's got a bad case of fleas now.

    Reminds me of the frog and the scorpion story when involved with Chidchob.

    ^^ that's basically the core of the issue, we don't need another Thaksin proxy, we need fresh blood and a new beginning

    Thaksin proxy government had no legitimacy, and that's how democracy works, you protest against an illegitimate government and have them resigned

    Your selfish wants aside, it would be far better for this country to sort out it's problems once and for all, and having an unelected government without a mandate from the people is not going to make any problems go away or solve any of the underlying issues that have beleaguered Thailand in the last several years. They are only on hiatus for a matter of weeks or months until it all bubbles to the surface once again.

    Only when people are really suffering economically will they effect a lasting change for the better. The seeds have been sown amongst the rural poor but real change is being stifled by those with no interests in the betterment of others, only in their own selfish wants and gains.

    Sorry to say, but it's going to have to get a lot worse before it gets better for Thailand.

    I wasn't commenting to bemoan my 'selfish wants' but merely using my small business as indicative of the losses Thailand is facing as a result of this on-going conflict...every tour I lose hurts people down the line...vans...drivers...hotels...restaurants...gui des etc...

    People need to take a look at the bigger picture instead of griping on about things...

    They were elected, but didn't run their official mandate, and that's why they got banned by the court. No matter how you want to spin it, this is perfectly acceptable, legally, and democratically.

    An overdue wake up call for the entire tourism industry to improve itself.

    However it may be the case that the industry will wallow in self pity and delusion and do nothing but raise prices and further antagonise visitors with scams and dishonesty, instead of improving services, offering incentives to attract potential visitors and addressing and acting on many of the concerns previous visitors have aired.

    In the current economic crisis businesses have to get ship-shape or ship out! Separate the wheat from the chaff.
    Thai tourism is going to be one tough market this year, and for the foreseeable future.

    Newin released on bail in rubber sapling case


    Former deputy agriculture minister Newin Chidchob was Tuesday released on bail in a corruption case related to Bt90-milllion rubber sapling distribution project.

    He placed assets worth Bt2 million as guarantee with the Supreme Court's Criminal Division for Holders of Political Positions.

    He also sought permission from the court to skip court hearings.

    What a load of clap-trap...can you actually say anything without resorting to such tired old cliches...

    I come from years working as a hotel manager in a number of countries and can tell you that Thai staff are streets ahead of Europeans and Antipodeans in terms of service and also regarding their personal honesty...
