Thai Government Still Stalemated After Election

One vote in Bangkok and the world's not your oyster


BANGKOK—Thailand's election Sunday was a fraught affair featuring protests, scuffles and padlocked voting stations, that failed to provide a clear outcome and did little to resolve a deep political stalemate.

The question for the country now is whether Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's government will be able to hold additional by-elections in areas where people were unable to vote and eventually open parliament, or whether her opponents have bought themselves enough to time to force her from office through a series of potential legal challenges.
