‘Bizarre’ Thailand Elections

Thai writer Aim Sinpeng describes the recent election in Thailand as one of the most bizarre in the country's history:

The February 2 election in Thailand was not only one of the most bizarre, but also “pointless” elections in recent memory. “Missing” polling stations, locked up ballot boxes, an M16 shooting match, and a complete boycott by the second largest political party are among the many incidents that characterize the recent election in this Southeast Asia nation.
