China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Thai­land’s op­po­si­tion Demo­crat Party re-elected for­mer prime min­is­ter Ab­hisit Ve­j­ja­jiva as its leader on Tues­day ahead of a cru­cial de­ci­sion over whether to boy­cott up­com­ing elec­tions. Ab­hisit, who ran unopposed in the party elec­tion and re­ceived 98 per­cent of the vote, was charged with mur­der last week in con­nec­tion with the deaths of two peo­ple dur­ing a 2010 crack­down on anti-gov­ern­ment pro­test­ers while he was prime min­is­ter.
