ABSTRACT
The article reports on the challenges facing Thailand Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva for 2010. It cites Abhisit's plan for charter changes and a general election in 2010 that has put him on a collision course with both the People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD) and the United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD). It suggests the need of prime minister to make inroads into former premier Thaksin Shinawatra's political base among the rural poor in the country's northeastern region.
