From Thairath, November 2, 2003
Title: Wait… arc welder… can fix it.
[Here former Democrat Party secretary general Sanan Kachornprasart plays a role to reconcile between the opposition, led by Democrat Party, and the government. The three men from Democrat Party in the background are (left to right) Suthep Thaugsuban, Chuan Leekpai and Banyat Bantadtan.
Sanan was long a behind-the-scenes puppet master of Thai politics, bring together coaltions and then ordering them to fall apart. Thaksin, however, slowly replaced Sanan and other puppet masters as he slowly gained completed control over the Thai political world.]
