Friday, September 29 2017 | NEW ERA WORLD 49 Thai junta chief says fugitive ex-PM Yingluck in Dubai BANGKOK Thailand’s junta leader yesterday said fugitive ex-premier Yingluck Shinawatra is in Dubai, a day after she was handed a for negligence. Prayut Chan-O-Cha’s first clear comments on Yingluck’s whereabouts came a month after she ghosted out off Thailand, ducking a court ruling over charges she failed to stop graft and losses in a costly rice subsidy policy by her government. On Wednesday, Thailand’s top court sentenced her in ab- the plug on her political career. She maintained her innocence throughout the case, which sculpted by her family’s enemies among the arch-royalist army and elite. “I learned from the foreign ministry that now she is in Dubai,” said Prayut, who toppled Yingluck’s government from Once a fresh arrest warrant is issued, Thai authorities may proceed with extradition efforts, he told reporters. Yingluck’s older brother Thaksin, also a former premier, has a home in Dubai. The 2001 rise of Thaksin, a billionaire former cop with a magic touch at the polls, rattled Thailand’s establishment and the country has since seesawed between elected governments and coups. avoid jail on a graft conviction he says was politically motivated. Defence Minister Prawit Wongsuwan, a key architect of the coup that took down Yingluck’s government, said: “It’s good she is in Dubai.” “Although [we] don’t have ex- informed our foreign ministry that they will not allow Yingluck to make any political move.” The 50-year-old, who still has the right to appeal, has not appeared in public since pulling the vanishing act on 25 August, her initial ruling date. - Nampa/AFP Tough Dutch coalition talks harbinger for Germany: experts THE HAGUE Efforts to cobble together a Dutch government are set soon to pass a record 208 days, highlighting the strain of forming a fragile coalition with political partners who sometimes make strange bedfellows. As Dutch Premier Mark Rutte nears the end of threading together a shaky four-party deal following the 15 March elections, just across the border German Chancellor Angela Merkel is also facing some stark choices, political experts say. Almost seven months after Rutte’s liberal VVD party won the March polls, the Netherlands will on 9 October pass the current 208-day record, set in 1977, for the longest-running negotiations to form a government. A first attempt shortly after the vote, to form a fourparty coalition involving the ecofriendly GreenLeft party, was left in tatters after they failed to agree on the hot-button issue of immigration. The Dutch political landscape has been further complicated by the rampant rise of the far-right, poaching votes from traditional centre-right parties and the crumbling of the traditional left, which paid a heavy price for their partnership in the outgoing coalition. Although the signs seem to be that there is a deal now within reach, it will be an uneasy marriage between Rutte’s business-friendly Liberal VVD, the progressive D66 and two Christian parties, the pragmatic CDA and more conservative Christian Union. Formed in the swinging 1960s, D66 is pro-abortion, pro-gay and lesbian rights and wants the country’s euthanasia programme to be extended so all people – not just the terminally ill – can decide to end Electricity Control Board, an equal opportunity employer, is an electricity regulator whose objects are to exercise control over the electricity supply industry and to regulate the generation, transmission, distribution, use, import and export of electricity in accordance with prevailing government policy so as to ensure order in the efficient supply of electricity.

Gerrit Zalm, the third mediator appointed to help form the coalition, told the NOS public broadcaster late Tuesday he could “give no date yet” when government will be formed. In Germany, Merkel faces a similar tricky task, and could possibly team up with two smaller and very different parties dubbed the “Jamaica coalition” because the three parties’ colours match those of One is the pro-business and liberal Free Democratic Party (FDP), while the other is the left-leaning, ecologist Green party, whose campaign pledged to drive forward the country’s clean energy transition. “Whatever comes out in the coalition forming in both countries... some of the issues that are important today are issues that are hard to clinch compromises on,” said Claes de Vreese, political communication professor at the University of Amsterdam. “The more partners you have at the table, the more the compromises,” De Vreese told AFP. “In both the Dutch and German cases the main danger keep everybody happy,” added Kees Aarts, professor in politics at Groningen University. The coalitions that will be formed are unlikely to be very stable, De Vreese added. Both analysts pointed to the huge gains made by the far right, both in The Netherlands and Germany.

Across the border, the hardright – nationalist Alternative for Germany (AfD) – became the country’s third-strongest party with 12.6 percent after Sunday’s elections. In both countries, the mainstream parties have refused to collaborate with either Wilders or the AfD. “Those parties ending up in a coalition know that a large part of the electorate is De Vreese. “There will be many voters... who will end up not being represented and that’s a frustrating start for any new government,” he said. - Nampa/AFP ONLY SHORTLISTED CANDIDATES WILL BE CONTACTED
