Thai elections may not happen

This saga continues to unfold. Thaksin Shinawatra now seems to be denying suggestions that he was about to step aside. Meanwhile Thailand's election commission chairman has cast doubt on whether the election which was due to take place on the 2nd April can go ahead as the planned boycott by opposition parties may mean not enough MPs would be returned in the election. The article also goes on to confirm the divide between rural and urban areas. As readers of this blog will have deduced I am not a Monarchist by nature but I really hope that Thai politicians listen to the appeal from King Bhumibol's advisor for all parties to work together to solve this crisis.
