More corruption at local level?

Recommended Posts

A few months ago, national elections were held, fine, but what about local elections, from village level up to province level? 

 

The officials now in charge have been there way beyond the term for which they were elected. 

 

One may wonder how this can be legal... 

 

Anyway, the main issue is that this state of affairs encourages corruption, since the officials don't have to face anymore the risk of not being reelected. 

 

This is certainly the case in my area where not one red cent, or baht, of public money has been spent on any project benefiting the local population, for the last two or three years. 

 

At least, when elections were still held, the officials felt compelled to spend on something they could show, as proof of their usefulness, but not anymore. 

 

Now maybe I am just imagining things, like others who see rampant prostitution (in Pattaya) when there is almost none... the easiest way to not deal with an issue is simply to declare that it doesn't exist...

I read one Thai defender that claimed to have been here over twenty years and had never witnessed any corruption anywhere...

 

I'm thinking his glasses have been besmirched by his own do.
