“Unpredictable, messy” is how the March-24 election is seen by academics

The March-24 is anything but predictable. That’s the general consensus among some of Thailand’s leading academics and political experts just less than a week away from the first general election for the country in almost eight years.

 

They agree that the electoral system – in which a vote cast will be used to determine both winners in the constituency election and those in the party list candidates as well as who the next prime minister will be – is one key factor that defies analyses of the poll results.

 

The entry of some new political parties, notably the Future Forward which is attracting large following among first-time voters, has also added an element of unpredictability

The unpredictability heightened with polls showing a unprecedented turnout. Couple with the 23 young voters and 7 million or there about new voters, I dare say that the tide is turning against the junta parties. All is left to see is whether Ahbisit and Anutin will renege on their stance against the junta. 

They both have already.
