Here at New Mandala we are gearing up for Thailand’s election on Sunday, 3 July 2011. It promises to be a particularly busy night and, as ever, we welcome anecdote, commentary, analysis, photos, video and any other materials from guest contributors. As results come in, Andrew Walker and I will be ably assisted by the rest of the New Mandala team from our base in the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific.
Meanwhile there is still action in Burma, important news from Cambodia and all manner of other things to keep us busy. But on Sunday night attention will shift completely to Thailand’s election and the question on everyone’s lips: can Yingluck Shinawatra and Pheua Thai win well enough to stitch together a new government?
