No chance of a free and fair election
Re: “Key state bodies to meet on legal hurdles to election”, News, June 14.
There is not going to be a free and fair election. How could anyone think otherwise, given the horrendous unfairness displayed on a daily basis by this junta?
Whatever “legal” (that is, a fictionalised “law” made up by the junta) route the Thai people follow regarding the election, all roads will lead to Junta-land.
There is no “legal” way out of this impasse.
Just as we all thought, they’re preparing for another delay. This one is fraught with peril. How do other countries call for, prepare and have elections all within the space of three months? Is Thailand so unique that it requires years?
A reader asks why other countries , such as South Korea where a local poll was just conducted, have no trouble arranging elections.
