Thailand : Shift from Military to Civilian Governance UPSC NOTE


  • Srettha Thavisin, a property tycoon from the Pheu Thai party, elected as Thailand's Prime Minister.

  • Marks a move towards civilian governance after almost a decade of military rule.

Election Dynamics and Military Influence:

  • Move Forward, the winning party in the parliamentary election, couldn't form the government due to military-royalist opposition.

  • Pheu Thai, the second-largest party, formed a coalition with military-aligned parties to gain a chance at governance.

  • Tried twice to form the government but was blocked by military-appointed Senators.

  • Faced allegations of hiding share details in a defunct media company, leading to his ban from Parliament.

Military's Historical Role:

  • Thailand's history includes numerous military coups (over a dozen in the past century), often backed by the monarchy.

  • Military's control has generated periods of populist resistance.

Pheu Thai Party's Background:

  • Pheu Thai party originated from the pro-democracy movement led by Thaksin Shinawatra, ousted in 2006.

  • Prior to elections, promised to keep military out of politics but later shifted stance.

Democratic Transition or Military Influence:

  • The situation isn't seen as a true democratic transition.

  • The military maintains influence, controlling the government from the backseat.
