Thai govt spokesman confirms PM Prayut’s US visit is not canceled

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Govt spokesman confirms PM’s US visit is not canceled BANGKOK, 25th September 2017 (NNT) - A government spokesperson has confirmed that Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha will visit the White House, probably in October. Deputy government spokesperson Lt Gen Werachon Sukondhapatipak has insisted that the prime minister will definitely visit the United States at the invitation of President Donald Trump, denying a rumor that Gen Prayut’s White House visit had already been called off due to certain restrictions. He said the United States is looking forward to Gen Prayut’s visit, but is currently preoccupied with the United Nations General Assembly which closes on Monday, September 25th, and the ongoing efforts to help those affected by natural disasters. The US has recently been hit by heavy storms and hurricanes. In response to State Counsellor of Myanmar, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s call for the world community to help resolve the Rohingya crisis, Lt Gen Werachon said Thailand will not intervene in other nations’ internal affairs, but will abide by the framework and treaties of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. -- nnt 2017-09-25

10 best dry shampoos


The Independent

Dry shampoo can be a girl’s best friend – prolonging that blow dry, sorting out a greasy fringe, adding body to locks at the end of a long day or full-on skipping showers, Glasto-style – but it can also be a recipe for crispy, heavy and, worst of all, white hair. Just a few years back, your only option would have been trusty Batiste (beloved of teenage Reading-goers everywhere), but now every other hair-care brand has its own version. We’ve been shower-skipping and spritzing to sort the wheat from the chaff and find the ones that actually perform; binning any that left a sticky, hairspray-like sheen, dandruff-like build-up or simply didn’t work.

Thai TV dramas with transcript Thai subs

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

I've waited years for this but I still can't find any TV series (on YouTube etc) that has transcription Thai subs. That is, Thai subs that are an exact transcription of the spoken dialogue. There are loads of Eng subtitles for Thai dramas, but it would be more useful for a Thai language learner to have Thai subs. Anyone aware of any for any Thai TV drama series? Anyone have a native Thai friend who is one of those devoted Eng subbers and can persuade them to carry out the easier task of putting up Thai subs? My Thai stalled three years ago. I want to get learning again. Thanks.

Pheu Thai dismisses chance of Prayut returning as PM

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Pheu Thai dismisses chance of Prayut returning as PM By JINTANA PANYAARVUDH THE NATION Pheu Thai party caretaker secretary-general Phumtham Wechayachai. BANGKOK: -- MOST people would bet on junta chief General Prayut Chan-o-cha returning as the next prime minister given the current military-sponsored Constitution that paves the way for him to continue to rule the country. But the road may not be as smooth as expected, Pheu Thai party caretaker secretary-general Phumtham Wechayachai has warned. “Don’t ever daydream of [returning as the prime minister],” Phumtham told The Nation in an exclusive interview. He pointed to Myanmar, where the military regime set regulations to block the then-opposition of Aung San Suu Kyi, the National League for Democracy, which won a landslide victory in the 2015 election. “You can learn a lesson from Myanmar. The military controlling the government for more than 50 years eventually had to give power to Suu Kyi,” he said. Under the 2017 charter, senators can join MPs to propose to suspend the rule requiring prime ministerial candidates to come from political party lists, paving the way for an “outsider” prime minister to be selected. Dubbed the “military party”, the 250 senators, who will be selected by the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO), are regarded as a crucial support for Prayut to become the next prime minister. However, Phumtham dismissed such a scenario. “I don’t see how Prayut will become prime minister again, unless he runs in an election. Which party or who will nominate his name? Pheu Thai will definitely not,” he said. Besides, the junta had failed to solve the crisis and various problems after staging the coup in 2014 to overthrow the Yingluck Shinawatra government, he said. After more than three years of ruling under special powers, the military had answered the question of whether it is capable of running the country, he said. Ruling the country involves economics and social issues, not just security, he said. Phumtham suggested that the junta talk to people on the street to understand that they are still suffering from bread-and-butter issues and wanted an election to be held as soon as possible. “If you [the NCPO] cannot do that, you have to admit it. And go back to the barracks. Your expertise is as soldiers and taking care of security. If an elected government fails to perform, they would resign and let the people cast their votes [in an election] again,” he said. The junta has pledged that an election will be held following the “road map to democracy”, and it is tentatively scheduled for late next year. However, Pheu Thai, the former ruling party, was not certain that the vote would be held, Phumtam said. “What is obvious is uncertainty. The junta always creates ‘conditions’ for the election. First, they said they were waiting for the organic laws, and when the laws were about to completed, they said if ‘no reconciliation, then no election’,” Phumtham said. He also urged the junta leaders to return governance to a normal state of affairs. “The answer today is not who wanted whom to become prime minister, but to release the country from this undemocratic trap and enable it to be acknowledged by the international community to move it forward,” he said. On the contrary, people in power tended to look for an “exception” or “crisis” to find an excuse, he said. “We think the attempt to find an ‘abnormal’ way is a crisis for the country. And we don’t see any obstacles for the country to move forward – unless some people still enjoy power, want to perpetuate their own power and do not want to resume a normal system for the country,” he said. Speaking of the possibility of a national unity government after the next election, Phumtham said in his opinion politicians in the House of Representatives could successfully agree on a prime ministerial candidate nominated by political parties without needing an “outsider” prime minister. “Unless there is a huge crisis, for example. World War Three or a tsunami, we may need a national unity government,” he said. However, he insisted his party would not join such a government formed by unelected military officials. As for Pheu Thai’s future after the fugitive former prime minister Yingluck fled the country, critics have questioned if her escape would spell the end of the “Shinawatra era” in the party. He said his party had several figures who could serve as the next party leader, including Khunying Sudarat Keyuraphan, Chaturon Chaisang, Phongthep Thepkanjana, Bhokin Palakula and Chaikasem Nitisiri.

PM Prayut: Roadmap doesn’t prolong NCPO’s power

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

PM: Roadmap doesn’t prolong NCPO’s power BANKGOK, 25th September 2017 (NNT) – The prime minister of Thailand has reiterated that the country’s reform roadmap doesn’t prolong military control at the expense of political parties. Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha has given an assurance that the current administration and the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) have no interest in perpetuating military rule in Thai politics, nor does the 3-phase roadmap allow the military to cling to power for years to come. He said the government is trying to build trust with the international community through partnerships and diplomatic ties, while calling on the general public to help foster unity and reconciliation in the country as well as ensure a peaceful atmosphere, during the period leading up to the next general election. Thailand is awaiting 10 organic laws to be promulgated after which the exact date of the general election can be determined. At this preliminary stage, the election is expected to take place late next year. -- nnt 2017-09-25

Register 26 old Luk Krueng in tabien baan with thai birth certificate

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Hello there, I got my thai birth certificate from the embassy this year and would like to register me in my mothers tabien baan for my thai ID. So i went with my mother to the amphoe and showed them my birth certificate and they took copy from everything and talked to my mother for a few minutes. They are all confused and dont know to handle that case because i can not speak thai and was born in germany. They told us to come next day with the headmen of the village to witness that i´m the child of my mother. One day later The employee who did the interview on the headmen told us to wait now and he will give us a call. Everything should done step by step he said. That was 2 weeks ago and no response from the amphoe. I guess I can wait forever if i want to do that there. Is that normal that it takes so much time for a registration? I know 2 Luk Krueng in pattaya who did the first registration in one day and got handed out the thai ID´s What others options do i have? Is there any other place where i can register? A Tabien Baan service agent or something like this? All other relatives are in my mothers Tabien Baan. Any help is welcome. Thanks

JD.com’s CEO: We will make Thailand Asean’s hub

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

JD.com’s CEO: We will make Thailand Asean’s hub By SUTHICHAI YOON THE NATION RICHARD LIU, the billionaire founder of JD.com, says he has set his sights on making Thailand a major hub for his e-commerce expansion plan in Southeast Asia. “We plan to make Indonesia the centre for the island area of Southeast Asia and Thailand the hub for mainland Southeast Asia,” said Liu, 43, who is challenging Jack Ma’s Alibaba Group’s inroads into Thailand. In an exclusive interview at his headquarters in Beijing last Tuesday, Liu, whose Chinese name is Liu Qiangdong, said he would be coming to Thailand in early November. “I would like to sit down with business leaders, entrepreneurs and e-commerce operators of Thailand to discuss how we can work together, how we can empower them with our experience and technologies, and ensure that we all benefit from this new partnership,” he said, when asked how he could assure local businessmen that China’s e-commerce giants would not destroy local businesses. Liu founded JD.com in 2004 in the wake of the SARS outbreak. Today, the massive e-commerce company with about 150,000 employees around the world, claims to be the largest retailer in China, online or offline, with about 258.3 million active users. In the second quarter of 2017, JD.com reported that its gross merchandise value (GMV) had hit US$49.5 billion (Bt1.6 trillion). In 2007, Liu began building a self-operated nationwide logistics network. Together with fleets of delivery vehicles and tens of thousands of delivery personnel backed by data-driven technologies, JD.com boasts same-day and next-day delivery “at a level of service unmatched globally”. It claims to have fulfilled 591.2 million orders in the second quarter of this year. Asked what he would bring to Thailand, Liu said: “First, we will bring our experience. We have built up a very successful e-commerce experience in China – from zero until today. We have a lot of know-how and experience, which I think is quite important to Thailand.” He said in the past 13 years, JD.com had invested a “huge amount of money” in technology. “We will bring our new and best technology to Thailand,” he said. He cited as examples smart warehouses, drones, last-mile delivery, robotics, search systems, big data and cloud computing technology. “In other words, we will bring every latest, new technology to Thailand,” he said. Asked what JD.com had that others did not in the battle for business in Thailand, Liu said: “We have created the best user experience in China. Even in the global context, if you look at our delivery speed, our postal service, and our quality control system, we are always the best. We will offer Thailand the best consumer experience.” He added: “We will spend enough time to build up trust in Thailand and the other Asean countries. We will offer the best products, at the best prices and best services.” JD.com recently announced the establishment of two joint ventures with Thailand’s Central Group, investing up to $500 million covering online sales and financial technology (fintech) services. Under the agreement announced yesterday, half the investment will come from Central Group, with the remainder from JD.com in China and financial technology operator JD Finance and Provident Capital, which is JD.com’s strategic partner for its Indonesian e-commerce business. Across both the e-commerce and fintech businesses, Central Group will leverage its extensive retail resources, including its physical store network, which will serve as key omnichannel and payment locations. It will contribute its brand and merchant relationships, as well as its retail behaviour insights from its popular customer loyalty programme, “The 1 Card”. Liu said: “Thailand’s large population and developed infrastructure, including strong national logistics networks, give it tremendous potential for both e-commerce and fintech services. “Working with Central Group, Thailand’s strongest retail group, with a massive shopping mall and department store network, gives us a huge competitive advantage as we expand further into Southeast Asia,” he said. JD.com has joined hands with about 130,000 merchants to help brands access the large China’s consumer base. It has also built strategic partnership with Tencent and Walmart to leverage JD’s expertise. JD.com was listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange in May, 2014 with a market capitalisation of over $55 billion as of May 19. The company is the first Chinese Internet firm to join the Fortune Global 500 List. Source: http://www.nationmultimedia.com/detail/business/30327558 -- © Copyright The Nation 2017-09-25

Japan, China compete for influence in Thailand

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Japan, China compete for influence in Thailand By WICHIT CHAITRONG THE NATION File photo Tokyo’s huge trade mission to Bangkok highlights contest for economic weight. BANGKOK: -- A RECENT massive Japanese trade mission to Thailand involving 570 investors and a senior cabinet minister has left many in Thailand wondering why Japanese businesspeople are so keen on investment opportunities in Thailand. The trade mission, led by Hiroshige Seko, head of the Japanese Ministry for the Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), included a close look at Chon Buri, Rayong and Chachoengsao in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC). Japanese journalists who accompanied the trade mission often asked questions about whether Chinese investors would overtake Japanese investment in Thailand. The questions indicated that Japanese investors were concerned about losing its pre-eminent role in foreign direct investment (FDI) in Thailand. There are alarming signs as China has aggressively promoted its One Belt, One Road initiative, which would connect China more closely to overseas markets. China has secured major agreements for investment in high-speed rail in Laos, Thailand and Indonesia. China is obviously making an aggressive move into Asean. Among Chinese investors, Jack Ma, founder of giant online trading platform Alibaba, is making the Chinese influence felt around the world and the company has expressed its intent to invest in the EEC. China has moved aggressively as the United States, the world largest economy, has threatened to impose trade restrictions on products made in the country. The Chinese government has also made it easier for state enterprises and private investors to increase investment abroad as part of its strategy to counter the US move and to create its own sphere of influence. In contrast, Japanese investors have not yet made a big splash to match multi-billion-baht high-speed rail lines and the activities of Alibaba. Yet the METI trade mission suggested Japan has moved to counter and compete with China’s actions. Seko sent a strong message about “connected industries”, an initiative of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and Japan is upgrading its production base around the world by introducing automation, robotics and the Internet of Things to manufacturing. Japan is still the largest foreign investor in Thailand, accounting for 36.2 per cent of total FDI by year-end 2016, followed by Singapore and the EU representing 14.8 and 14.3 per cent respectively, according to Bank of Thailand data. “While Japanese investors remain on top, Chinese investors are increasing,” said Hirunya Suchinai, secretary-general of the Board of Investment of Thailand (BOI). Hiroyuki Ishige, chairman and CEO of Japan External Trade Organisation, said a recent investment survey had found that 53.6 per cent of Japanese investors thought the EEC was strategically important and 78.6 per cent said investment incentives for EEC projects were effective. Chinese and Japanese direct investment would make generally EEC investment more attractive. Saowaruj Rattanakhamfu, a researcher at Thailand Development Research Institute, said she was optimistic. She said the EEC was attractive because the government would build infrastructure projects, airports, seaports, high-speed rail and motorways to bridge Thailand with other countries in the region. “The hard part may be the soft infrastructure – how the government can effectively deliver one-stop services for investors. How the Food and Drug Administration can speed up its approval process for licensing requested by investors," she said. The government will submit the EEC bill to the National legislative Assembly this week following Cabinet approval last week, bringing the EEC a step closer to implementation after delays. Critics, however, have questioned the huge tax privileges offered by the BOI. Padma Gehl Sampath, an economist at the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, has argued that the excessive tax privileges could affect government revenues. Other questions also remain. Some Japanese investors have worried about a shortage of skilled labour, while Ishige has also pointed to the downward trend of Japanese automotive investments in Thailand, with new investment instead going to Vietnam, Philippines and Malaysia. According to the BOI, foreign investors have applied for investment privileges in Thailand totalling Bt119 billion in the first half of this year, up 5 per cent from the same period last year. Japanese investors ranked first with plans worth Bt65.4 billion, followed by Singapore and China with Bt15.3 billion and Bt 7.1 billion respectively.

Support for ex-girlfriend?

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Short version: How much support do I have to or should pay to my long time ex-girlfriend? More info: I lived more than 10 years together with my Thai girlfriend. I met her when she was 17 and we lived together since then. She did not work while we were together. We had good time and bad times but now the bad times are just too much and I decided it does not make sense to continue with this by now failed relationship. She is not a bad girl, she never cheated, she never stole money or lied to me about something important and I think it's only fair that I support her for some time after we separate. My idea is that I give her maybe 10,000B per month for 6 or 12 months or something like that. As far as I know legally I am not required to pay anything. If this is incorrect please let me know. What do you think is a fair support payment? Should I pay? How much? Any conditions? Thanks for any ideas.

Used car transfer / registration?

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Bought a used car in Bangkok last week. I live in Pattaya, so went to the vehicle licensing center in Banglamung to transfer ownership. I was directed to a helpful English-speaking 'agent' who wanted 7500B to handle the transfer. I've bought cars in Thailand before and don't recall paying that much. I'm not so bothered about a few thousand baht (the car was 680K) but paying more because I'm a farang always annoys me. Anyone know a place in Pattaya that can get this done at a fair (i.e. Thai) price? TIA

Multiple tourist entrties in Thailand. How to ?

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Hi everyone, I intend to return to Thailand end November and would love to spend, if possible, the next 12 months. I hold a french passport, all new one , no stamps and my last stay in Thailand was a bet more than a year ago. So my question is how many entries maximum i can have with tourist visa withtin 12 months? Can i spend a year there (with exit the country every 3 months) or do i have to look after another type of visa after one double entry ( that i could probably do at Ventiane as i intend to spend a week or 2 in Laos before entering Thailand. Monaco consulate ask way to much documents now ( letter from employer , large saving account,etc.... ) and as i quit my job, that might be a bit harder. I stress the fact that I do not intend to go to work legally/illegally or go to learning thai school. I have post trauma issue that required a bet of rest and thai relatives , owner of holistic clinic there, propose me some help so.. Much appreciate if you guys have way to do that. Thank you all for your time and have an a great day.

Credibility of Thai justice system tested by probe of officials abetting Yingluck’s escape

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Credibility of Thai justice system tested by probe of officials abetting Yingluck’s escape By THE NATION File photo THE NATIONAL Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) has been urged to appoint a credible committee to investigate police officers responsible for helping ex-premier Yingluck Shinawatra flee the country ahead of the Supreme Court’s scheduled August 25 reading of its verdict on her criminal case. Suriyasai Katasila, a deputy dean of Rangsit University, said the public had been closely watching the incident, so the NCPO must ensure that the truth is uncovered by credible investigators. In addition, he said, other security and related agencies should be appointed to take charge of the investigation since police investigators alone were not sufficient to give it credibility. Pol Colonel Chairit Anurit, a deputy chief of the Bangkok Metropolitan Police, has admitted in a preliminary investigation that he had helped Yingluck exit the country via the Thai-Cambodian border by using police vehicles and other cars to pick up the ex-premier from her house in Bangkok’s Soi Watcharaphol area. Suriyasai said many people were sceptical about the government’s handling of this issue. Also, the NCPO itself is seen by some as having tacitly allowed Yingluck to leave the country before facing the high court’s verdict in her case of negligence of official duty while overseeing her government’s rice-pledging scheme. He said he believed high-level authorities were responsible for tacitly approving Yingluck’s efforts to flee and police investigators appear to be taking the case too lightly. This would affect the reputation of the justice system, reinforcing perceptions that the rich and powerful are often let go without having to face punishment, he added. If the case was not handled seriously, the government and NCPO would be seen as conspiring with other interest groups to cheat the justice system, Suriyasai added.

Heading back after 6 years...

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

...feels like a lifetime, though. It's been great, but there's a lot to miss as well. How are things, TV Teaching in Thailand forum section people? It seems pretty quiet around here, but hey..I know you're out there!...here's a handful of questions for ya. Pick and choose, ignore the rest, whatever: 1. What would you say are some major changes in Thailand ELT in the last while from where you're sitting? (+/-) 2. I came back and did an MA TESOL, gained more English teaching experience in a variety of contexts here in the states (a lot of refreshing aspects once you're out of the Thai classroom bubble!), and got involved in teacher training. Also been presenting at conferences, serving on boards and committees, you know...being a professional teacher person to a large degree (my CV is here). So upon my return I'll be looking for university positions and similar. Have a number of warm irons here and there, but nothing solid yet. Enough preamble - the question is: what's on the grapevine? Do you have/know any positions that might be of interest? I'm activating my (remaining) network, trawling the net, and preparing to hit the ground running! 3. Anybody on here been around the forums for a long time? I was on the old blue teaching forum (and others along the way) from 2005 to 2012 or so, and occasionally on here...any old forum heads around to say hi? Let me know! It'd be a kick to find a few familiar virtual faces in the woodwork. 4. One more while I'm here: what, from where you're sitting, is the market like for opening smaller sized language schools? Any expert or non-expert advice welcomed, just thinking about things generally as a future interest. Well...that's all folks. Hope things are going well wherever you are. I was back in April for a couple weeks and got to visit the king's memorial. That was nice. The big ceremony is happening soon, isn't it? How's the street food 'clean-up' going? Back in April things on the sidewalks in central Bangkok definitely felt more spaced out. I guess it was a good thing. You could still find street food along the way. I'll also mention that I'll be in Korea from November through most of January, and then plan to be at ThaiTESOL in Chiang Mai in late January. Anybody planning to be there? Once again, please do reach out if you or someone you know is looking for a dedicated, flexible, creative, and mature English language teacher or trainer, curriculum/materials developer, etc. I'm all in! Oh, random bonus question: is DK Books still the best place to buy ELT books and materials in Bangkok? I know there's Chula as well, Kinokuniya to some degree. Just wondering if there's a new/better resource these days. Always liked DK Books, but spent way too much there. Not cheap, but I've always valued reading and learning as a teacher, as well as having lots of materials of my own to use and draw from. This is getting long. Matthew out!

Big toenail permanently removed. Success in BKK!

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

I'm 70 and have had toenail fungus since age 5. The fungus is sharp, digs in and makes walking painful, needing ugly, painful and bloody clipping every 3 months or less. Bumrungrad (my hospital) doesn't do toenail extractions ("it's just going to grow back", so said the Bummy Doc, so no concept of what I wanted done: "Oh!!!...you want us to remove!! the roots TOO?! Sorry, we don't know how to do that!") Shift to cheaper Mission Hospital and an Indian doctor (Dr Harpreet S. Grover 0-2282-1100). No problem for Doc Grover, and 5000B removal per nail (well, 2 followups after at 900B apiece, to check recovery all in the first week after op. (Not really necessary, and I might pass on these for my second and last extraction)). About 5 minutes for the operation itself (rip toenail off, then remove roots under nail). All very informal and effective. No big deal and painless with the right local injections. I'll do the other big toenail in a month or so. Beware that you won't be doing much walking for a week (and shouldn't). I limited myself to short walks for food. Note: previous to this, I'd given up hope here. After Bumrungrad, I tried a Thai doctor recommended here for this exact thing, but he's now gone into the year-long-treatment-for-toenail-fungus racket and tries to steer you away from removal as "too dangerous". (these operations are done in the US all the time, and there are many youtube videos if you want to see how easily and safely it's done)

Dilemmas in the new electoral system

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

OPINION Dilemmas in the new electoral system By Punchada Sirivunnabood Special to The Nation AS THAILAND’s military government sets out its road map to democracy and an election, anticipation and anxiety are both running high. Steps have been taken to implement a schedule for elections. The organic law on political parties and the organic law on elections are almost ready for launch. These two laws, though, seem to contradict one another. While the law on political parties pushes toward stronger party organisation, the law on elections emphasises the role of individual candidates. Drafters expect the organic law on parties will promote strong party affiliation and party rootedness. New articles in the law promote party institutionalisation. For instance, the law introduces primary elections for candidate nomination, with an eye toward giving party members control over the nomination process. According to the law, party members will be able to vote for up to 15 candidates from a list of 100 people in their constituencies, and the names of the top two vote-getters will be reported to the nomination committee. The drafters hope that this new process will enhance the role of party members and therefore lead to stronger party organisation. Parties would no longer be set up as ad hoc institutions for elections, as the organisations would have real power. Primary elections, however, have been criticised by both politicians and scholars who argue that a small subset of party members cannot adequately reflect the voice of the people. There is a danger that primaries might promote a clan system in the political arena. Moreover, primaries will also cause difficulties for small parties due to their limited membership. Small parties are unlikely to survive if the system is implemented. Even the large parties do not tend to have long membership rolls, let alone have them in all constituencies, as required by the new law. Beyond just finding members, parties would risk dissolution if any of their constituent members committed any wrongdoing. Despite these major concerns, the drafters of the organic law intend to implement the primary system in the next election. In addition, the new organic law on parties requires members to contribute membership fees. Only fee-paying members can take part in the party’s internal activities. The Election Commission will also use the number of fee-paying members to calculate state funding for political parties. These institutions are meant to compel parties to rely more on their membership rather than leaders. While the organic law on party stimulates party institutionalisation, the organic law on elections introduces articles that have the opposite effect, weakening the role of parties over candidates. Under this new electoral system, the mixed member apportionment system (MMA), voters will cast a single, fused ballot for a candidate instead of casting two separate votes as in the previous election, where they selected both a candidate and a party for the party-list. The fused ballot will count as both a vote for the candidate and simultaneously a vote for that candidate’s party for purposes of the party list seats. The total number of votes a party receives nationwide via this single vote will determine the allocation of party-list members of parliament allocated to each party. The 150-party list seats will be distributed among parties according to the proportion of these district votes they receive. This single ballot system will likely make voters think of their vote as primarily a candidate vote instead of a party vote. Candidates will potentially conduct campaigns to favour themselves, leaving aside the party policy. The new organic law on elections also allows candidates to have their own number in each constituency. This means there will be no unique nationwide number for the party. This system will make voters focus on candidates rather than party. The calculation system under the MMA also places an emphasis on the number of votes each candidate wins. Article 114 of the organic law on elections states that the ECT would announce the election results when the returns from at least 95 per cent of constituencies are ready. If there is reported electoral fraudulence in any district, the votes from that district will not be calculated for the party list seats. The numbers of votes from those districts will be recalculated again for the party list seats when the re-election is conducted. By doing so, some incumbents in the party list system may be replaced by new parliamentarians after the re-calculation. This system, once again, places emphasis on the district candidates while weakening the role of party-list parliamentarians. While the organic law on parties pushes forward party institutionalisation, the organic law on elections tends to favour individual candidates. By implementing the new electoral law, voters will have the luxury of voting for their favourite politician, potentially divorced from their party preference. At the same time, the organic law on parties will push politicians together into stronger parties. The two organic laws seem to present opposing forces in party system development. Of course, electoral engineering in Thailand has previously met with unexpected consequences. With an election on the horizon, we will be forced to wait and see how these new organic laws change the Thai political party landscape.

Thai junta leader, backers fuel suspicions of plans to stay in power

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Thai junta leader, backers fuel suspicions of plans to stay in power By Panarat Thepgumpanat, Patpicha Tanakasempipat and Panu Wongcha-um Thailand's Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha poses for photo with local government officers at a farmer school in Suphan Buri province, Thailand September 18, 2017. REUTERS/Athit Perawongmetha BANGKOK (Reuters) - In his dark suit, Thai junta leader Prayuth Chan-ocha cut an incongruous figure guiding a rice tractor across a muddy paddy field in front of cameras and watching villagers. The prime minister's latest photo opportunity won applause from farmers watching in straw hats and his visit to Suphan Buri on Monday brought a call from a local political bigwig for him to stay in power for another decade. Political activities in Thailand have been suspended since Prayuth's 2014 coup, but Thai politicians are asking whether what looks like campaigning is exactly what it seems. The trips to the countryside, a new Facebook account and a chorus of political groups offering support are raising suspicions of a plan to keep Prayuth in power even if long-promised elections happen next year. "It's not beyond expectations that he is out campaigning in the provinces to prepare to become prime minister again," said Chaturon Chaisang, a leader of the Pheu Thai party, which under various names has won every election for a generation. Since August, Prayuth has visited six provinces, including places traditionally considered important battlegrounds for elections. Such trips with his cabinet will now be monthly. In the previous three years, he had only taken two such trips outside Bangkok. "I am not here to make people love me, but I want everyone to love the country," Prayuth, 63, told farmers in Suphan Buri, 100 km (60 miles) north of Bangkok. Said 60-year-old farmer Samruay Tongpratet: "If the prime minister can truly help the poor then he can stay as long as he wants." Prayuth's office declined to comment on any plan to keep him in power. CREMATION AND CORONATION Politics will not resume until well after the cremation next month of the revered King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who died last October, and the subsequent coronation of his son, King Maha Vajiralongkorn. In the meantime, Prayuth has the field to himself. "That's why he needed to hold these mobile cabinet meetings in the provinces, act more like a politician, hold rallies, and meet the people," said Thitinan Pongsudhirak, director of the Institute of Security and International Studies at Chulalongkorn University, noting the signs that Prayuth wants to stay longer. Last month, Prayuth set up a Facebook page with pictures of him walking with his arm around a farmer's shoulder and giving alms to monks. It now has nearly 11,000 likes. A poll in June showed that 53 percent of Thais would like Prayuth to serve another term. Although Thailand's economic growth lags other countries in Southeast Asia and dissent is strongly repressed, surveys show that Prayuth's backers welcome the stability since the coup. Whether that calm survives electioneering is another question after over a decade of turmoil between colour-coded factions that Prayuth said he sought to end with his coup. On one side is the 'yellow' Democrat Party, which is popular with middle-class voters and has strong support in Bangkok and parts of the south. On the other side is the 'red' movement of ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, whose parties appeal to poorer voters, particularly in the populous northeast. Thaksin's sister, Yingluck Shinawatra, was overthrown by Prayuth in the 2014 coup and last month fled Thailand ahead of a verdict in a corruption trial - eliminating a charismatic party figurehead who might also have rallied opposition to Prayuth. 'OUTSIDE PRIME MINISTER' Although he cannot technically stand for election because he would have needed to resign by July, a new constitution drawn up at the junta's behest does offer him a route. He could be chosen as an "outside prime minister" - foreseen under the constitution if the winning party fails to get enough votes for its candidate in the 500-member lower house of parliament. In such a case, the upper house would also have a say - its 250 members will be picked by the military. Prayuth would still need support from at least half the lower house, however. Although neither of Thailand's two main political parties has said it would endorse him, smaller players are mobilizing. Paiboon Nititawan, a former member of a now-defunct reform council, has set up an office for a new People's Reform Party to back Prayuth. Suchart Chantharachotikul, a classmate of Prayuth from military school, told Reuters he is coordinating smaller parties to form a grouping to back the junta leader. "Prayuth's military government isn't perfect, but they took care of problems like unrest. It wouldn't be so strange if he stays on for another four years," Suchart said. A composer of sentimental ballads, Prayuth has dropped hints in his music of a longer term political future. His latest song, "Bridge", repeats a message that he will stay as long as it takes to steer Thailand through troubled waters. "My two hands won't let you go," says one refrain. -- © Copyright Reuters 2017-09-24

Middle name and first name...Vietjet Thai

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Flying on Vietjet Thai, for the first time. I have heard horror stories about people denied boarding for not having their middle names on tix, when they were on their passports. Of course, they can buy another ticker at 4x what they already paid. In Vietnam, their passports read last, middle middle first...they have two middles. Mine reads last, first middle....the vietjet site ask for last in the first box, then middle and first in the second box. I entered first then middle in the second box....my printout matches my passport...did I make a mistake? Should they change their English site? Will it simply not matter? And millions out there say middle name doesn't matter, but clearly, the trend is that it does. Cathay Pacific requires it, and I just went a few rounds with AA, who acknowledged that when they got my Cathay ticket in March, it wasn't necessary, but that has now changed, so they fixed it.

Thai fishing fleet fights for survival amid EU pressure

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Fishing fleet fights for survival amid EU pressure By PRATCH RUJIVANAROM THE NATION Raft of vessel improvements proving costly for boat owners NEW TECHNOLOGY and other improvements have been introduced in the Thai fishing fleet in an effort to get the nation removed from the European Union’s “watch list” for illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing. In the latest approach to shed the IUU “yellow card”, a satellite communication system, fishing vessel improvements and the introduction of onboard observers have been imposed on all fishing vessels that operate in international waters to enhance monitoring of fishing activities and improve supply chain transparency for seafood products. However, the fisheries sector has meanwhile accused the EU of using the IUU ratings as a trade barrier. Industry operators have argued that adopting the new technology and other improvements was a cost that business owners could not bear and could lead to the collapse of the industry. Since 2015, Thailand has been on the IUU watch list for its “unimproved fisheries industry”, which the EU claims is destroying marine resources and ecosystems, abusing workers aboard fishing boats, and failing to provide necessary facilities for workers. The Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Centre (SEAFDEC) was confronting those issues, said secretary-general, Khom Silpachan. The agency had taken an active role in helping the fisheries industry improve practices to pass IUU regulations, he added. Khom said the SEAFDEC programme had created a sample design of a fishing vessel improved to meet the EU standards. “We can say that most of the Thai fishing fleet does not meet the IUU standards, because almost all of the vessels are not equipped with necessary facilities for the crew onboard, such as a sleeping area, dining area and lavatory,” Khom said. In response, the boat, christened the Pla Lang 1, was designed as a showcase, providing an example for fishermen to adapt for their own vessels to meet IUU health and safety standards. Khom said boat owners did not need to improve their entire fleets at once or in the case of single-boat owners make all the corrections at one time, but could modify boats step by step to reduce the financial burden, he said. To improve the transparency of fishing activities, the SEAFDEC has also trained onboard observers to monitor the catch and report to the Fisheries Department. Observers are supposed to make sure that fishermen use legal fishing equipment and catch only allowed types of fish. “The observers will not only make sure that our fishing activities align with IUU standards, their information also will let us know about the fish populations in each area, so we can set the right fishing policies to ensure the sustainability of our marine resources,” Khom said. Meanwhile, Inmarsat Plc, in cooperation with USAid and Thai Union Group, have spearheaded the installation of a satellite communications network on fishing vessels to boost the monitoring of fishing activities and improve the livelihoods of workers. Inmarsat’s chief sales officer, Gerbrand Schalkwijk, said the communications network allowed fishing boats to communicate with officers onshore as well as with each other. Crews can also use the Internet while at sea. The technology allows officers to monitor boat locations and receive real-time catch data. “It will improve fishing standards as well as the livelihoods of the workers at sea,” Schalkwijk said, adding that four Thai Union fishing vessels had already been equipped with the communications equipment. The technology, which is small and lightweight, has already been tested and adopted by many countries, including Indonesia and China. While the cost for the communications equipment has not been made public, Schalkwijk said price would decline as more units were sold. However, the improvements were too expensive for Thai fishermen, said Mongkol Sukcharoenkana, chairman of the Thai Fisheries Association, who added that if fishermen were forced to embrace all of the upgrades, they would go bankrupt. “It is a very high cost for us to implement all these measures to please the EU,” said Mongkol. “Picking only the cost of hiring an observer for each fishing vessel, it will cost the business owner Bt4,000 per day and Bt120,000 per month. “The cost of going to sea is already high nowadays. We cannot afford such a big expense.” Numerous new fisheries rules have resulted in many Thai fishing vessels staying on shore, said Mongkol, adding that in practical terms, the nation’s fleet had already been barred from international waters because no operator could afford the additional costs required to meet the EU standards. “We realise now this is all just a trade barrier by the EU, because all of the fishing vessels in Thailand are [following the law], but they still keep the yellow card for Thailand.” Source: http://www.nationmultimedia.com/detail/national/30327551 -- © Copyright The Nation 2017-09-25

Pheu Thai will not shake off the Shinawatra connection

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

EDITORIAL Pheu Thai will not shake off the Shinawatra connection By The Nation Is sticking with them the right strategy? Even if former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra is found guilty by the Supreme Court this week over her government’s rice-pledging scandal, it is unlikely to cast any shadow over her relationship with the Pheu Thai Party. The bond between her clan and the biggest political party has apparently become unbreakable and, to the party, it does not matter whether the linkage is an asset or a liability. A few days ago, the party’s acting secretary-general emerged to seek evidence regarding her “escape from justice”. The move by Phumtham Wechayachai underlines what everyone expects – that the party is not just keeping links with her, but will also use her to advertise itself. From the way things are, the party will not distance itself from the Shinawatras, but will rather seek to win the next election based on its connection with the clan. It has been the same with her brother, Thaksin. Pheu Thai and the Shinawatras cannot exist without each other. The relationship is different from the one between the Democrat Party and its leadership. The rival party, which was unable to match Pheu Thai’s rural popularity in previous elections, has made more natural transitions when it comes to passing the torch. In other words, the Democrat Party can easily move on if Abhisit Vejjajiva leaves the helm, but Pheu Thai’s future will be absolutely volatile without Thaksin’s family. Some say the time is ripe for Pheu Thai to come out of the Shinawatras’ shadow. Others say the party is not ready for a normal transition. The camp has had several leaders since Thaksin was overthrown in a 2006 coup, but everyone of them, including Yingluck, was his thinly-veiled nominee. Pheu Thai’s link with the Shinawatras has its pros and cons. It won the party elections, obviously, but it has also beset the political camp with problems serious enough to destabilise its governments. The latest turmoil the party faced resulted directly from a legislative policy its opponents insisted was designed to help Thaksin. Before that, Pheu Thai had been strongly convinced that it would comfortably hold on to power in the years that followed. Everything was going its way, namely the return from five-year political bans of more than 100 politicians who were practically its allies, the passage of key financial bills, and the internal problems of the Democrat Party itself. Then the “amnesty bill” changed everything, as the aggressive push for its passage refuelled anti-Shinawatra sentiment, triggered massive street protests and led to the 2014 coup that toppled Yingluck. Phumtham and other Pheu Thai strategists are certainly aware of the risks associated with the party’s linkage with the Shinawatras. But they must have either concluded that it is too soon to cut loose from the clan, or, more likely, decided that they will stick with the family forever. Pheu Thai always considers the middle-class uprising against it a pro-Democrat conspiracy. That may be a mistake as big as the Democrats’ assumption that Pheu Thai only bought its way to power. The wrong assumption keeps Pheu Thai from the middle class, meaning it always has to rely on the Shinawatras come what may. Pheu Thai is going into the next election with two choices. It can keep the strong bond with the Shinawatras, hoping that it brings a victory that can give the party boasting rights, or it can start accepting that, in the Thai context, election victories alone are not the answer to all questions including its own.

New Build in Khon Kaen

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

In My Thread "cost of build " (link below) you were all very helpful with great advise and help to find a builder. https://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/1002138-coast-of-build-this-home/ As Promised , and to show my appreciation, I will try to document the process. The good, the bad, and the ugly and hope we can all benefit from it. The lot is relatively small, about 18m wide and 25m deep so I chose a design that fit the lot, maximise it;s use, and fit the environment. This is a video of the same house some one else has build, we plan to maintain the same color scheme, with some modifications. We are not very materialistic, and like functionality and low maintenance. So with that in mind, we have reversed the plan moving the balcony to the inside of the property, made the balcony and guest bedroom ,5M bigger, eliminated the Buddha room, eliminated rear stairwell, balcony and moved the master bedroom bath downstairs, making the master bedroom larger. Added a door from the master bedroom to the bathroom between bedrooms for easy access. I am a beer drinker, and I am lazy, and as we all know you don't buy beer you rent it, and running upstairs to the bathroom every five min would be a hassle to say the least , so a bathroom downstairs. have not decided yet, but I might add another room downstairs. I know it is a lot easier now, and less expensive, but I would like to leave a project for me to keep me busy when I retire in a couple of years. Anyway, if you are all like me, i will try to use less and small words, and more pictures To start, for those not familiar from the other thread, Let the games begin !

Man arrested with 26 iPhone smart phones at airport By Thai PBS BANGKOK: -- An Australian man was arrested at Suvarnabhumi international airport on Sunday as he tried to smuggle 26 iPhone X smart phones worth an estimated one million baht into the country. The Australian, identified as Ho Won Harvard Lee, who claimed to be a music producer in Australia reportedly said that he intended to sell the smart phones in Singapore. He claimed that he was not aware that he had to declare the phones with customs officials for tax assessment and payment because he was awaiting to connect a flight to Singapore.

Thai logging crackdown nets 18 Cambodians

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Eighteen Cambodians were arrested by Thai authorities last week after being caught illegally felling Siamese rosewood trees in a Thai national park in Nakhon Ratchasima province. A group of Thai park rangers raided the group’s operation in Thap Lan National Park and arrested them while seizing 99 planks of rosewood on Tuesday. According to media reports, the suspects claimed they had been hired by an unnamed Thai businessman to cross into Thailand illegally and log the wood before transporting it back to Cambodia. The operation allegedly consisted of at least 45 men, with the others still at large. Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesman Chum Sounry could not be reached for comment yesterday. In the past, Mr Sounry has said Thailand always cooperates and deports Cambodians when they are only caught crossing the border illegally – but almost always prosecutes them in Thailand once they commit crimes. read more http://www.khmertimeskh.com/5083229/thai-logging-crackdown-nets-18/ -- © Copyright Khmer Times 25/09
