tai  Hoy se publicó una buena nota en el International Herald Tribune sobre la situación en Tailandia.

Sirva como resumen de lo ya dicho.

“It is impossible to change the way rural people vote,” said Achara Chantasuwan, 53, a librarian, who sat on a red plastic chair in front of the big-screen outdoor broadcast.

“That’s why the PAD wants to introduce the New Politics,” she said, referring to a plan in which 70 percent of the parliamentary seats would be appointed by professional groups, while just 30 percent would be elected by voters.

“They’ll have the right to vote, but it will not allow their vote to dominate our country,” she said. “If we let people be like that, we cannot develop our  country.”

These passions showed themselves last week when doctors at a Bangkok hospital said they would refuse to treat police officers wounded in the clash with protesters.

Separately, the pilot of a Thai Airways plane refused to fly three members of Parliament from the ruling party last week, calling one of them a threat to national security.

¿Razones? Esta puede ser:  Wooed by populist programs like low-cost health care and cheap loans, the rural poor came together in support of Thaksin Shinawatra, who transformed Thai politics during six years as prime minister.
