Je vous copie la nouvelle en anglais, elle est trop bonne. La derniere idee de Thaksin pour sauver sa peau : demander a tous les thailandais qui le soutiennent de lui envoyer une carte postale avant le 5 mars. Histoire de demontrer que les manifestants de la fin de la semaine ne sont qu'une poignee a cote de ses supporters des provinces. Quelque part, il n'a pas vraiment tort la-dessus...
Par ailleurs, les partis d'opposition s'accrochent à leur boycott.
PM invites all Thais who want to support the government to send postcards expressing their opinion to Government House.
Minister Thaksin Shinawatra invites all Thais who want to support the
government to send postcards expressing their opinions to PO.Box 88 at
the Government House.
At around 9PM, Prime Minister Thaksin
showed a billboard stating the address of Government House. He invited
the people to express their love for democracy and peace, so that
violent clashes will not occur. He said that all postcards will be
assembled in front of the Thai Khu Fah (ไทยคู่ฟ้า) building to
demonstrate that most people want peace and democracy in the nation,
adding that he wants the people to send their opinions as quickly as
possible or before March 5. He said that he resorted to the use of
postcards because he does not want the people to travel to Bangkok, as
they can cause traffic problems, adding that the method is not aimed at
surveying the Government's popularity. He said that the postcards will
provide a channel for Government supporters to express their opinions.
for the rally planned for March 3rd, the Prime Minister said that he
will speak out on all issues that have been accused by the opposition.
He expressed his belief that the rally will not break election law. As
for the opposition's boycott of the election, the Prime Minister said
that he does not know what else he can do, as the government has done
its best to solve the situation.
