(March 15, 2019) Army-backed regime pulls poll disguises - Thitinan Pongsudhirak

 At issue in the looming election is less about Thailand's return to democratic rule and more about the country's slide into long-term military-authoritarianism with democratic disguises. The most recent military seizure of power on May 22, 2014, appears increasingly like a coup to remake all coups. However the votes are decided, the army-backed junta under the National Council for Peace and Order, spearheaded by Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha, intends to stay for the long haul.

 

Either uprooting the junta and its army or putting up with its retention of post-election power is likely lead to unavoidable tension and confrontation. The junta will not go away without a fight as much as the majority of Thai people are unlikely to tolerate its indefinite power.
