ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Thai prime minister Abhisit Vejjajiva's political career as well as political conditions in Thailand. Vejjajiva, who is the fourth prime minister in 12 months, came to power on December 17, 2008, after pro-monarchy demonstrators blockaded Bangkok's international airport until the government fell. It is noted that Vejjajiva has pledged to restore Thailand's economy, but Thai and foreign investors wonder whether he'll last long enough in power to tackle it.
