Yingluck Ouster won’t Stop Phuket Protesters

Local anti-government protesters have welcomed the Constitution Court decision depriving Yingluck Shinawatra of the premiership of Thailand, but will continue to push for democracy to be “rebooted”.

“Even if the judge’s decision was unanimous,” local protest leader Amnuay Kumban told The Phuket News today, “the Yingluck government did not accept the decision and are still stubborn about admitting the outcome of the court.

“She still wants to hold onto power and she still believes that she has the power.

“I do not agree with the [appointment of] the new temporary Prime Minister, Niwatthamrong Boonsongpaisan, because he should be an elected Member of Parliament.”

(Mr Niwatthamrong entered Parliament as a Pheu Thai Party List MP in 2011 and immediately became Minister to the Prime Minister’s Office.)

“It is illegal and it is wrong in principle,” Mr Amnuay said. “And he is from the Thaksin [Shinawatra] network.”

Surathin Lienudom, leader of the Phuket Patriotic Rebels, said he believes that Ms Yingluck will also be successfully impeached over corruption in the failed rice pledging scheme. The National Anti-Corruption Commission has decided to follow up the impeachment petition lodged by Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva.

“That’s the way it should be and according to the law she should be punished. She did not take care of the problems.”

Asked for his opinion of the replacement PM , he said, “We have to keep an eye on the situation.”

Mr Amnuay said that as the protests by the People’s Democratic Regorrm Committee (PDRC) rise again towards another climax, “We are going to join the people power [in Bangkok]. We can seriously say that we, the people ourselves, are revolting against Yingluck’s former government.”
