  • [01] Thailand: Government Disbanded

    Thai judges ordered Prime Minister Somchai Wongsawat's ruling People Power Party (PPP) disbanded on Tuesday after it was found guilty of vote fraud, but party members vowed to "move on" and form another government.

    "We will all move to a new party, Puea Thai, and seek a vote for a new prime minister on December 8," Jatuporn Prompan, a PPP MP, told Reuters. The Constitutional Court also barred the party's top leaders, including Somchai, from politics for five years, raising the risk of clashes between his supporters and thousands of anti-government protesters blockading the capital's two airports. The court also ordered two other junior parties in the government coalition disbanded.

    At the same time, 2 Canadian tourists were killed and another 4 (3 Canadians and a British) were injured in a car accident in their way to Bangkok and Phuket. It mus be noted that thousand of tourists remained in the country when anti governmental protestors occupied Bangkok airport.
