A doubt on democracy

A doubt on democracy - translated and summarized from an editorial in Matichon, August 30, 2007
The author states that there are now many political conflicts between the old power group's People Power's Party led by Samak Sundaravej and the election commission. This is leading to a doubt about the progress of democracy of the nation. The author is concerned over the role of the election committee, specifically formed to support democracy, but that it now lacks clarity about its activities and standpoint. He points out that the current conflicts between each power group will lead to more vote-buying activities in the upcoming general election, eliminating the democracy for the people.
