ABSTRACT
The article presents a 2009 political outlook for Thailand by the Business Monitor International Inc. (BMI). The violent protests initiated by the United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD) and the cancellation of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit signal that Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva's tenure could end. BMI mentions that the dying down of the tension and the possible amendment of the charter could far remove the political friction in the country.
