Many in Thai society have been waiting for an election which, like Godot, never seems to arrive. The military junta has scheduled the election many times, only to delay it again and again. Yesterday, it was made official: Elections have been called for 24 March. Will Godot finally arrive?
About 40 protesters, many of them first-time voters, chanted pro-elections slogans, waved placards, and performed political songs in a protest to demand no further delay of the national elections in Khon Kaen on Wednesday.
