Pheu Thai, 3 allied parties to form govt

Caretaker Interior Minister and Pheu Thai Party leader, Charupong Ruangsuwan, has insisted his party will form a new government along with its current three coalition parties.

The Pheu Thai, Chart Pattana, Chartthaipattana and Phalang Chon parties are still close allies, Mr Charupong said.

The four parties will maintain their strong relationship to pave the way for the formation of a new government together, he added.

The show must go on! If the EC can't, or won't finish the election, it's the only road to go.

Stepping aside and not exercising his civil right is a shame for democracy.

What part is normal ? Holding an election during an emergency decree or forming a government when there are no published election results I don't recall anything like that happening in Austrailia.

Interesting, the election has not yet concluded but the PTP have announced themselves as winners and are already forming the new government. One could argue that this act is unethical coercion of the remaining voters and as such should be grounds to annul the entire election.

If Thailand truly wants a democracy, the first thing that needs to be done is have a foreign country that lives under a democracy help set a curriculum in Thai schools that teaches the people what a democracy actually is. It is far more that “getting” the vote at any cost, behaving like a dictator and then doing whatever you want with no checks, balances or accountability. The best example I’ve seen of a democracy in Thailand was not the Yingluck “getting” the majority vote from those who participated but the peaceful stepping aside by Abhisit who didn’t.
