PM: By-Election Results Unsuprising

BANGKOK, June 29 -- Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said on Monday he was not surprised that the opposition Puea Thai Party had won a by-election over the weekend as northeasterners still love convicted former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra.

Mr. Abhisit said Thailand?s northeast remains a strong base for the Puea Thai Party. There is no wonder that the party had won the by-election on Sunday because people there still love the former prime minister.

The Puea Thai Party won the by-election in Si Sa Ket Sunday in a landslide, after trouncing a candidate from the Chart Thai Pattana Party, a partner in the coalition government.

A week earlier the party also won a by-election in the northeastern province of Sakhon Nakhon as it defeated a candidate of the Bhumjaithai Party, also a partner in Mr. Abhisit’s coalition administration.

Asked why the government has not yet fully explained its development policy to residents of the North and Northeast, considered a bastion of ousted premier Thaksin, M. Abhisit said his government was not afraid of travelling there, but it did not want to create conditions of conflict.

He said that a general election cannot be held soon, despite demands by the anti-government United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD), as long as tension and conflict remain in several areas in the country.

Thepthai Senpong, personal spokesman for Democrat Party leader Abhisit, said Sunday’s Puea Thai party by-election victory cannot be interpreted as a conclusion that the opposition would comfortably win the next general election, in part because nobody knows when it is going to take place.

Buoyed by victories in the two by-elections, deputy leader of Puea Thai Party Apiwan Wiriyachai said his party had decided not to welcome back former party members who had jumped ship and joined the Abhisit government.

Retired Colonel Apiwan said his party and the ruling Democrats “cannot work together now but it?s not certain in future. There?s a possibility if the Democrat Party adjusts its working style in line with the Puea Thai Party.” (TNA)
