Latrobe University political scientist Michael Connors has an opinion piece over at Asia Sentinel that will be relevant to the many NM readers who are closely following the political jousting in Thailand. He writes:

The rationale for wanting to dismantle Thailand’s electoral system is evident: pro-Thaksin forces keep winning elections. And as Thaksin is said to represent everything bad about Thai politics, he can not be allowed to wield power directly or indirectly. Thus, for Sondhi, and it would seem the PAD leadership as whole, there is now a need to bring about a revolution in political representation.
