What happens in Thailand at the moment? Is there anyone interested in any progress in the rule of law, justice and national unity? The present subversive actions trying hard to avoid the election doesn't give much hope that the result of the election will be accepted by the defeated side. After the election the usual distortions will come up. From day to day it's becoming more obvious that there are people - a minority with extreme positions - absolutely not willing to play a constructive role. The fate of the country and the development of its society seems no concern to them. Credit Suisse is already downgrading the Thai stock market to the level of "marketweight" advising foreign investors to reduce there investments in Thailand. They are talking about political risks obviously expecting unrests after the elections. Â
What are the reasons for this unpleasant development?
Presently Thailand is ruled by an unelected government. Despite some tries to spread gifts among the voters it is not sure if they will get a democratic mandate again. Particularly their yellow minded partners see their hopes dashed.
But lacking abilities to convince voters are substituted by their uncontrolled will to power, not shrinking back from forcing the country into the next trouble. Rule of law and justice are big words often used but never practised if they are protecting the opposite side. Double standards are surprisingly common to them.
Accepting the result of a democratic election is a matter of justice and strength. Will the people in Thailand be strong enough to overcome those powers in their own rows which are neither able to convince nor willing to accept the voter's will? Â
