What's the deal between Thaksin and Chavalit?

Thai Talk | Suthichai Yoon
Thaksin badly needed a "head" at his party. Chavalit was looking for a political role to play. It didn't take them long to come to an agreement that Chavalit would become "chairman" of the party while officially Yongyuth Vichaidit remains the official party leader. Chairman of the Party's Advisory Board is former Army Chief Gen Chetta Thanajaro.


During their discussions, Chavalit offered Thaksin to set the stage for reconciliation, having told the ex-premier that the "old way" of  trying to win at all cost wouldn't improve things.On the contrary, the situation will only get worse.

Chavalit was said to have told Thaksin that he would reach out to the military leaders, with whom he still holds close ties, at least at certain level, so that some sort of reconciliation between Thaksin and the army brass could take place.

The possibility of direct patching-up talks between Thaksin and Gen Prem Tinsulanonda, the Privy Council's president, is remote.
