Political observers and analysts in Thailand said that the opposing political parties and supporters in Thailand are unlikely to gain acceptance for any political party that wins the government elections. According to observers, regardless of which political side wins in the elections, the opposition will continue to push against the government “childishly and destructively”.
According to journalist Karim Raslan of Malaysia’s The Star, the protests, which have choked Bangkok’s economic growth and leading to senseless fatalities, have rooted from heavy opposition against the current standing governments.
Thailand Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has called on a Snap election to let voters decide the end of the crisis.
The protests began when Shinawatra attempted to introduce a political amnesty bill that would welcome her brother, Thaksin Shinawatra, back from exile. Her political decision had cost Thailand its government.
Despite calls of stability and security from Thailand’s King Bhumibol Adulayadej, people still continued to fight against each other.
Many protesters blame the Shinawatras as being the centre of corruption practices in Thailand.
Experts said that it is highly likely that Shinawatra’s Pheu Thai party will still be victorious in the Snap elections, but because the opposition will continue to push against ridding the parliament of the Shinwataras, the political instability could still continu.
