My new article in the Asia Times:
As Thailand edges closer to March 24 elections, the first to be held in the kingdom in nearly eight years, the upstart anti-military Future Forward Party is increasingly under siege.
Among the parties competing for seats at the upcoming polls, the progressive party has arguably been the most outspoken among those campaigning against a continuation of military rule under the guise of democracy.
The party’s political novice leader, Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, has vowed if elected to break the kingdom’s cycle of democracy-suspending coups and has put military-containing constitutional change at the heart of his political agenda.
