Political Update

An article in today's Bangkok post stated that the Election Commission (EC) is probably going to rule that the PPP party has acted as a nominee for the outlawed Thai Rak Thai party. I guess the fact that the Prime Minister basically campaigned on that platform was probably evidence enough. The article stated that they want to interview a few more witnesses before rendering judgement. One of these witnesses was deposed PM Thaskin.

So what does this mean? Well, it could mean an end to the PPP party, and possibly the current Thai government. I'm not sure that this would be the best thing for the country, as many blame the turmoil of the coup for some of the economic problems. True or not, I think most agree that a stable government is a necessary ingredient for a stable and strong economy. We'll see what happens.
