Thanks for the photos Nick!
When the celebrations are over and Yingluck takes office I believe there are 2 political priorities for the PT to sort out.
1. An international enquiry should be set up to investigate all aspects of events leading upto and including the demonstrations of 2010 and its aftermath. This enquiry should be headed by an international judge who is well respected. This enquiry should be open and transparent. It should have the power to question all people it deems neccessary to get to the truth and that must include the army. a final report must be made public. This is the only way that reconciliation can happen.
2. A new constitution should be drawn up that must include freedom of the press, internet and free speech and expression. 112 should be totally scrapped as it stops basic freedoms. The army has to be placed under civillian elected govts and serving officers banned from political activities as well as holding/running any private businesses.
Never again should this country be afraid of the army controlling the affairs of your country in any shape or form.
What YL and PTP needs now is “TIME” to set the record straight, for 5, 6 years the country legal system, law, authorities’s been manipulated to a intolerant level and it will take a lot of time to get it back on track, with the mass the Dem’s and the Junta created….People have to be patient to let YL and PTP do their work. Don’t expect split second results as they still have to go through a lot of obstacles in from of them and it ain’t going to be easy…..
Wining the election is just the first step to a rocky road up ahead, “We” the people must walk with them hand in hand. Everyone needs a lift in this world especially the ones we’ve chosen to lead…..

Investigation won’t happen as it will reveal responsibilities of the new leading party in violence and setting Bangkok on fire. Thais may want to ignore this but an International Investigation will find out the ugly truth.
Right on Lalida and it’s so good to hear that the good burghers of Chonburi haven’t been forgotten and will be part of the government. They will finds lots of old friends in there too.
Not even a day in the office, and already a lot of the opposition is setting deadlines for her to keep promise. 9 months, they said. While the same ones won’t even asked Abhisit when he failed abysmally to deliver any of his.
C. Yossarian #4,
Talking about Suthep’s lovable Black shirts, are we? 400-500 ghosts that seems to disappeared into the clouds under the nose of fully armed 30,000 troops with APCs & Helicopters? (I know their competence is in question, with GT200 and all)
I guess you must have some new evidence to share with us? DSI seem to take their time in finding out anything. I was sure we won’t find out soon who is behind this. But seeing that you’re so sure..
It seems the election of Yingluck raised many questions. In this atmosphere of uncertainty I think she should hurry to take important measures which would clearly define her political project and give reality to her purposes. If she failed to do so, confusion may arise among some of her supporters.
The question of her brother should also quickly be settled.
Thai should take care of themselves, and I am not sure any international intervention would be helpful.
Thailand has the strentgh and will have the intelligence to find peace and provide the world with a new model.
As usual, in such a debate, a question remains : people have cast their votes, but where does the power lie?
