PM Yingluck charges opposition with unfair censure

BANGKOK, Nov 26 – Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra today deplored what she called the opposition’s unfair allegations against her administration, an administration which has protected democracy and fought against corruption.
In her opening speech at a no-confidence debate against her government, Ms Yingluck described the accusations against her, especially corruption, as “harsh and unjust.”
She said her government had encountered an economic crisis from the US and Europe since the start and it has adopted various measures to relieve the economic pressure which has hit every country in the region.
The government has solved the economic problem, leading to a surge of gross domestic product to 6 per cent and higher exports, she said.
She said the government has made it a policy to crack down on corruption and set up anti-corruption units in ministries as well as a counter-corruption operations centre to check public sector operations while the private sector network also participated in examining the government.
Ms Yingluck said the confiscated assets, ordered by the court, have been transferred to the state while the amnesty bill included no article on the return of seized assets.
The government and the Senate are not pushing for the amnesty bill, she said.
Opposition Democrat leader Abhisit Vejjajiva charged the government with cheating for its own interest and distorting the objectives of the democratic system which requires checks and balances.
“The prime minister is the core person who leads the country into the current quagmire and intensifies the corruption problem, resulting in the government’s credibility crisis,” he said.
“The government, under the prime minister, has destroyed the rule of law and anti-corruption mechanisms. It has issued laws in favour of increasing corruption in the country,” he said.(MCOT online news)

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
