Thai Senate Elections – 2008

Rosana has uphill task ahead - The Nation, March 3, 2008
...Starting out as a health and consumer-rights activist in the 1980s, Rosana emerged as one of the country's leading graft fighters when she led some 30 civic groups in the campaign against corruption at the Public Health Ministry between 1998 and 2003.
For the first time in Thailand, a politician at the ministerial level was found guilty and jailed for corruption.
She and her consumer groups' victory in halting the privatisation of the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand two years ago, and a recent triumph in the Supreme Administrative Court against PTT propelled her further into the public limelight.
Rosana become synonymous with accountability, transparency and checks and balances...

Right: Please vote for Rosana Tositrakul, No. 5. Outstanding achievements include corruption investigation. Please give me a chance to inspect government administration and balance its power for transparent Thai politics.
