Noppadon rejects Shinawatra family taking a break from politics

Thailand's anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) today turned down the idea of the Shinawatra family taking a break from the country's politics in an exchange with the election, while Thaksin Shinawatra's legal advisor today rejected the report on the controversial proposal.

PDRC leader Suthep Thaugsuban made his remarks following reports that ousted former premier Thaksin had proposed to his political opponents to allow the election to be held and that his younger sister, Yingluck and all the Shinawatra family would stay away from politics for one year in return.

Noppadon Pattama, Mr Thaksin's legal advisor, however dismissed the report today, saying he asked the ex-premier and found that it was untrue. The ruling Pheu Thai Party, he said, has never considered this solution.

He said final decision on who will be the number one candidate on the Pheu Thai party-list depends on the decision of the party executives. It is still too early to decide on the issue , he said, as no royal decree on a new election has been issued.

As Mr Noppadon rejected the claim, the protest leader stood firm that he will not talk or accept any conditions from Mr Thaksin.

Mr Suthep said that the PDRC will move on its reform before the election campaign.

Another protest leader, Thaworn Senneam, said the protesters did not object to the whole family but they do not want any political party which serves capitalism.

He emphasised that political reform is needed to prevent repeated problematic system. Once the reform is complete, anyone in the Shinawatra family is welcome to contest the election.

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
