The official outcome of Thailand’s national election last Sunday will not be announced until May 9. Preliminary results indicate a surprise lead for the ruling military party. However, the country’s main opposition party, Pheu Thai, says that it has formed a 255-strong coalition. The alliance would comprise a majority in the 500-member lower house of parliament and could prevent the military junta from returning to power.
