Thailand’s Critical Election » THAILAND-ELECTION/


Former Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra gestures during a meeting near his home in Dubai, after voting in general elections ended in Bangkok July 3, 2011. Thailand’s opposition won a landslide election victory on Sunday, led by the sister of Thaksin Shinawatra, in a triumph for rural and urban poor red-shirt protesters who clashed with the army last year. Exit polls showed Yingluck Shinawatra’s Puea Thai (For Thais) party winning a clear majority of parliament’s 500 seats, paving the way for the 44-year-old business executive to become Thailand’s first woman prime minister.
