Thaksin Shinawatra’s allies plan to use their electoral mandate to address what they call injustices committed since a coup in 2006. Moving too fast risks conflict with the Thai military that overthrew them.

The win for Pheu Thai, led by Thaksin’s sister, Yingluck Shinawatra, boosted stocks and the currency as investors shed their pre-election jitters and hailed the formation of a stable government. The incoming administration must overcome resistance from Thailand’s military, courts and bureaucracy as it seeks to allow Thaksin to return from a three-year exile and change the constitution to reduce the power of non-elected institutions.

“The biggest risk is that they move aggressively, that they say ‘We have a mandate and will use that to roll back what’s happened since the 2006 coup,’” said Andrew Stotz, a Bangkok-based strategist at Kim Eng Securities (Thailand) Pcl, the nation’s largest stock brokerage. “If he goes too fast and aggressive, the protests will start.”

Yingluck, who has deflected questions on whether Pheu Thai would promote amnesty for Thaksin, called for “unity and reconciliation” at a press conference yesterday in Bangkok at which she announced the formation of a five-party coalition. Thaksin, who has lived in Dubai since fleeing a 2008 jail term for abuse of power, told reporters there that he had no immediate plans to go back.

Sorry, it is his"sister" that is on the driver's seat now. Not that this makes her any better than Thaksin himself is. Both are scum.
