The road for Thailand democracy–The People

May 23, 2010

People is behind of democracy

Democracy is made by people

Phraya Manopakorn Nititada

The first Prime Minister of Thailand. He took his position in 1932. But, he was quickly overthrown from the Prime Minister position in 1933 by a coup also called Yellow cover dossier crisis.

He was born in Phra Nakhon province. He attended the college rose garden. There is very limited information about his political view. He encouraged the cooperative manner of land ownership. To a certain extent, he was the first leader who called for democracy in Thailand. The central theme of the plan is to nourish people’s welfare, to redistribute the nation’s wealth to poor people. But, very unfortunately, it is also his ambitious economic and democracy changes that trigger the military coup.

After the coup, he was deported to Penang, Malaysia.  He died at age of 64.

Thaksin Shinawatra

The Prime Minister of Thailand from 2001-2006. He has become a centered man in the recent Thai red shirts protest and clash. It is criticized that he is the real boss of the red-shirts and the terrorist of the nation, which he denied.  As I discussed in the previous article: The road for Thailand democracy–The Color, he was very successful in improving economy of the nation. He shared the similar view point with Phraya Manopakorn Nititada, to distribute the fortune to the poor people, to empower the poor people, to increase their welfare and social security. He also shared the similar destiny with Phraya Manopakorn Nititada. He was toppled from the Prime Minister position by the military coup in the name of abuse of power and corruption in 2006. He and his wife Pojama faced with corruption and tax evasion charges in 2008.

He was deported. This time is not Malaysia. He stays in London and Dubai for sometime. in 2009, he returned to Cambodia as the government advisor. His return to Cambodia, a country with border disputes with Thailand has raised anger from Thailand government.

He is an active man. His legacy still continues.

Pojaman Shinawatra

She is the wife of Thaksin Shinawatra. She influenced Thaksin Shinawatra’s life and political view as well. She was found guilty of tax evasion and sentenced to jail for 3 years. She and her husband exile life in UK was also not smooth. Their visas were canceled by the UK government. They were both forced to seek another asylum country.
