The article presents a political outlook for Thailand. It relates that the ruling of the Election Commission stating that the Chart Thai and the Matchimathipataya parties are guilty of electoral fraud, during the December 27, 2007 general elections, could lead to political instability. Moreover, it adds that if the Commission extends its investigation to the People Power Party (PPP) it could lead to the demise of the party, which in turn would lead to political crisis.
