“Damned ! Missed again !” : a yellow carded PPP candidate… wins again

“Missed again !”


Yellow-carded La-ong Tiyapairat, sister of former House Speaker Yongyuth Tiyapairat , wins the by-election in constituency three of Chiang Rai province.

A new round of voting in the third constituency of Chiang Rai province was held yesterday, after the Supreme Court division for election cases confirmed a yellow card for People Power MP La-ong Tiyapairat and a red card for her elder brother Yongyuth on the recommendation of the Election Commission.

La-ong got a decisive victory with 170,184 votes, while the second place Democrat MP Kitipong Namwong got only 19,480 votes.

However, the election results have to be approved by the Election Commission as soon as it is confirmed that no electoral frauds have been reported. (TOC)

She won last december at the general elections, but was yellow carded by the EC… And 8 months later, she won. Again. And apparently… a landslide victory.

Tasty, right ?

Let’s try a few hypothesis here…

-She cheated again. πŸ˜‰

-The voters don’t give a rat shit about what the EC and the Surpreme Court are saying or doing

-She won, in a fair manner, because she’s the best and she has the support of people. And she doesn’t need to cheat. πŸ˜‰

More seriously this news shows that nothing is solved.

While the medias entertain us with the Thaksin Saga… the balance of powers on the ground hasn’t changed !

The core of the political crisis remains. Intact.

Can you imagine if the PPP is dissolved (we will know tuesday if the EC ask for the dissolution)… Then they all join a new party… We have new elections… And they secure another victory !

It’s exactly what happened last december… The TRT, Thaksin’s party was disbanded, and replaced by the PPP. And then the PPP… won.

Back to square… one. ,-)

I’m wondering what the Democrat Party is thinking. And its leader, Ahbisit ?

“Damned ! Missed again !”

Thailand Crisis

Coup, Economic slowdown, Terror In the South... The situation is worsening in Thailand. Bumpy road like often before.

But this time, it's different.

The key to understand the present turmoil is the inevitable... succession of King Bhumibol.
