People in Thailand will be queuing up election booths on Sunday to cast their votes after about a half-a-decade of military rule, but experts believe the system is to produce a weak and unstable government.
No matter which side makes the government, either the civilian or military-backed party, a new phase of uncertainty is on card for the country.
Thailand is one of the best tourist destinations in the world and it is a United States ally in Southeast Asia.
Former general turned Prime Minister Prayut-chan-o-cha seized power in March 2014 coup and he is keeping the hope to retain back his position after the election with a hybrid political system.
Political science lecturer at Thammasat University, Prajak Kongkirati, said the new government will be unstable and can collapse in about a year and a half.
The five-year rule of Prayut has garnered much of complaints of human rights violations as well as growing economic inequality.
According to several experts the new military-designed political system in the country is unstable as all the sides fail to accept it and a new round of struggle could kick off for the people.
It is learned none of the major political parties would have enough elected lawmakers to select a prime minister and the country’s situation will be chaotic.
