Editorial: Reconciliation in the midst of conflict

Editorial: Reconciliation in the midst of conflict - translated and summarized from Krungthep Turakit, December 11, 2007
Regarding deposed Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra’s suggestion that a government of national unity should be set up after the General Election to bring about a spirit of political conciliation. The public reaction to the ousted PM’s suggestion was not particularly favorable. I believe this negative feedback is a part of the current fall from popular grace of the ‘old power’, as a result of the widespread perception that it was nepotistic. Many vote-buying allegations also surround both former members of the disbanded Thai Rak Thai party and the deposed prime minister himself. The only thing that might lead to genuine political reconciliation is for politicians to make a real effort to regain the general public’s trust.
