Suthep named Asia's Person of the Year 2013 by Asia Society

 BANGKOK, Jan 11 -- Anti-government protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban was voted Asia's Person of the Year 2013 by the Asia Society.
 
The Asia Society website (http://asiasociety.org) announced that Mr Suthep, the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) secretary general attracted 88 per cent of the vote, or nearly 116,000 votes in total, beating Malala Yousafzai, the female education rights activist from Pakistan.
 
She was runner-up for the second consecutive year. She earned nearly 12,000 votes, or 9 percent of the total.
 
The Asia Society website called it a "Thaugsuban phenomenon" because from no votes Suthep was dramatically flooded by votes from visitors.
 
"During the first two days of the year, our poll page received more than 172,000 pageviews. Nearly 165,000 of those visits originated in Thailand. Most of the traffic came from Facebook and a handful of Thai message boards," said the website.
 
Asia Society is a leading educational organization dedicated to promoting mutual understanding and strengthening partnerships among people, leaders, and institutions of Asia and the United States in a global context.  
 
Founded in 1956 by John D. Rockefeller III, Asia Society is a nonpartisan, nonprofit institution with headquarters in New York, centers in Hong Kong and Houston, and affiliated offices in Los Angeles, Manila, Mumbai, San Francisco, Seoul, Shanghai, Sydney, and Washington, DC.
