Ousted Thai PM says he wants to reenter politics
Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said he was not surprised that fugitive ex-prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra still hoped to return to politics in Thailand, saying that Thaksin's political comeback was possible on condition that he meets the qualifications to participate in political life and accepts the country's legal system, reported state news agency TNA.

Abhisit also stressed that the government would ensure fairness in his trials.

The prime minister was responding to Thaksin's interview with CEO Middle East magazine in which the billionaire tycoon said he wanted to return to Thailand, become prime minister and lead the country again.

Abhisit said the best way for Thaksin to re-enter political life was to respect the Thailand's system of justice, and not start any political movement, as it may cause damage to the country and also, Thaksin himself.

Thaksin was toppled in a military coup in 2006 and is now a fugitive, having jumped bail during legal proceedings against him in August.
