Thaksin’s sister, 44 Yingluck Shinawatra, admitted that he is a substitute for, will become prime minister of Thailand, women. But even as they mature, supporters fear that “dark hands that take away our rights again.”
“There is much hard work to do,” he said before encouraging Yingluck fans. “There are many things to do to make reconciliation possible.”
Thanksin supporters celebrated upon hearing that the preliminary results showed her party had won more than 260 of the 500 seats in parliament.
The main polling organizations predicted that Yingluck Pheu Thai party would get more than the 250 seats needed to form a new government.

Thaksin, who is in self-imposed exile to avoid a two-year sentence on corruption charges after he was overthrown in a military coup in 2006, also is expected to be given amnesty.

“There is absolutely, absolutely, absolutely going to be struggling,” said a supporter of the Democratic Party. “The rule of law in Thailand is not strong enough to withstand this.” Meanwhile, the soap opera that is Thai politics and has continued watching.
