THAI Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva in his annual address to the Foreign Correspondents Club of Thailand (FCCT) on Monday night said this.

“It is time for Thailand to move forward,” he declared.

But it was also clear that the shadow of former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra will loom large over the polls, which are expected in late June or early July.

In a swipe at Mr Thaksin who mentors the opposition Puea Thai party and has fomented the anti-establishment “Red Shirt” movement, Mr Abhisit said: “I can’t think of another election with such a clear choice – what the Democrat Party stands for and what the Puea Thai stands for.”
