'Crisis looms if Yingluck won't act'

BANGKOK: -- The country will plunge into a political crisis in the next seven days if Prime Minister Yingluck Shina-watra refuses to take responsibility and refuses to issue a royal decree to close the House session, opposition politicians warned yesterday.

Democrat party-list MP Buranat Samutrak said the ruling Pheu Thai Party had tried to push for the passage of "reconciliation" bills and amendment of the Constitution and had intimidated judges from the Constitution Court. He said if the situation turned violent next week, the PM cannot evade responsibility.

There had not been a move to close the parliamentary session. So, if Pheu Thai Party MPs insisted on resorting to their majority voice to pass the reconciliation bill and the charter amendment bill on the third reading - despite an order from the Constitution Court to suspend deliberation on the two bills, the PM could not avoid responsibility. That was because she stood to benefit from the passage of the law, as she would get back some of her assets confiscated by the Supreme Court.

Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva suggested that Yingluck reduce political tension by issuing a Royal decree to close the current session. He said Speaker Somsak Kiartsuranond hesitated to close the session because there had been pressure from Pheu Thai MPs to vote on the charter amendment bill. But if the bill was passed, there would be a clash between the ruling party and the Constitution Court. The Speaker would be under pressure to forward the bill for royal approval.

Abhisit said he had heard the ruling party was also pushing for the passage of the reconciliation bills on Wednesday and Thursday, even though there was no urgency for the law and the pubic had yet to approve details of the bills.

"The best way to prevent [possible] confrontations with the Constitution Court is to close the House session," he said.

Pheu Thai Party spokesman Prompong Nopparit said he personally felt the House could call a vote for the charter amendment bill on its third reading on Tuesday but it would depend on a resolution from the party on Monday.

Pheu Thai MP for Lop Buri Amnuay Klangpa said the Speaker had decided to call for a vote on the charter amendment bill on June 19. He hadn't done this on Friday because he learnt that the bill needed support from Senators but some of them had left the meeting after learning about the Constitution Court decision to suspend deliberation. But he said they now had enough support from senators and wanted to push for passage of the bill.

Democrat Songkhla MP Wirat Kallayasiri said before he filed a complaint with the court to seek the suspension of deliberation on the two bills in the House, he had asked legal experts if he should file it directly with the court or via the Attorney General. But he believed those who said the move should be done quickly to prevent Parliament from voting to accept the bills on the third reading. He said if the charter amendment bill was passed, Thai democracy would turn into dictatorial rule similar to that of Germany's Adolf Hitler

If ever you need proof thatYingluck is just a placement pawn in the rest of PTP and UDD,s grand plan then this issue highlights it.She doesnt go to parliament to talk on the issue and basically does as she,s told,incredible for such a major divisive issue.

And of course some will call this a threat by the Democrats,

when it more reasonably can be seen as a precient warning of

what will come, since sentiments are not 100% behind PTP's moves.

They may have a mandade to govern, but it's hard to see how this

totally biased rush job that will not bring about ANYTHING in it's name,

'Reconciliation', BUT will benefit Thaksin, his interests and those of

the PM personally, and their clan.

Governing is about working for the people, not working for the boss.

There is no mandate to work for the boss as he sees fit.

There is no mandate for the PM to get 900 million baht,

when her brother gets his money back as a clause in these bills.

This really puts the CON in reCONciliation.

The people can not help by see this for what it is,

a sham to get power and profit,for the Shin Clan.

Even the Red Shirts were seeing this for several days last week,

after Thaksin misspoke stating the naked truth by accident.

Impossible to see this otherwise with clear eyes and open mind.

Seems crisis is already here.If she persists with the madness, we have trouble from the opposition. If she puts it on hold, have trouble from red shirts and fellow party members, not to mention the big brother.

Yesterday, had a chat with a motorbike taxi outside of work, just a general chit chat about business, he asked me if business was doing well,i answered that it was not and it was very quite.

His response was, its because have trouble in Bangkok again, and maybe will get worse again.

Just thought it was an interesting comment from a local taxi driver with some perspective of what is happening.

He is hearing the word on the street.

If the street is talking this way, then the word is out things are afoot.

Very bad omens similar to when Thaksin lost his money to the courts.

No tinfoil hat or mai bpen rai head in the sand attitude is gonna save Thailand, if she doesn't act.. HAH!

More like; if she continues to act as she is acting, and those actions of her minders surrounding her.

Aye, there's the rub.

"Clear eyes and open mind", something the Red Shirts (Chemise Rouge) seem unable or unwilling to grasp.

But then, some would say that applies to Yellows as well.

From what I can see, she can't get involved. Yingluck and her family stand to benefit the most from this bill passing, so to be seen as directly involved with the bill will create bigger problems (for her) once it passes.

the bill must pass without her involvement.

Of course these two groups represent a small portion of the Thai populace,

who as the silent majority wish both would go away, and someone work for them instead.
