From left, Chaturon Chaisang, Thanathorn Juangroonruangkit, Abhisit Vejjajiva, and Paiboon Nititawan – politicians likely to be key players in the next election – yesterday speak at a seminar on Thailand’s future democracy at Thammasat University.

 

Abhisit, Chaturon and Thanathorn see junta’s legacy as barrier to genuine democracy.
 

THE JUNTA-SPONSORED charter, which imposes curbs on politicians, remains the prime target of big political parties who aim to replace it after the election even though it was endorsed in a 2016 national referendum, judging by the comments made at a symposium attended by prominent politicians yesterday.
