Will Thailand’s election winners have the chance to lead?
There’s a clear winner in Thailand’s election – the Move Forward party came through with three times the vote of the leading government party. That was two weeks ago. The people of Thailand, led by the youth, came out in a move against the ruling elite. But to claim power, Move Forward also needs to win a vote in Thailand’s senate, appointed by the military. Now that Thailand has voted for change, will the country have the opportunity to see it through?
