    Midterms resonate across Atlantic

    News, John Lloyd, Published on 12/11/2018

    » One of the major political messages of the US midterm elections has been that rural voters dominate the cities. While the Democrats made enough gains in urban areas to take control of the House of Representatives, Republicans were able to expand their majority in the Senate, where each state gets two senators regardless of population size. In an election where neither side can claim a sweeping victory, President Donald Trump's party did as well as it did because the small towns and the more sparsely populated rural areas of the United States are still, in the main, Trump country. Meanwhile, Democrat votes pile up in the cities, uselessly, from an electoral point of view.

    News, Thitinan Pongsudhirak, Published on 18/11/2016

    » In the immediate aftermath of the presidential election outcome in the United States, many Americans are dazed and divided.

    Understanding US election

    News, Published on 04/11/2012

    » Months of reporting and volumes of analysis lead to one conclusion for Tuesday's US election: We can't say for sure who will win. President Barack Obama is certainly ahead, but things could still change. Think of it as a Premier League game. Man City may be up 2-1, but with 10 minutes to play that could change.

    Japan goes shy on Khmer poll flaws

    News, Sek Sophal, Published on 13/08/2018

    » Cambodia's general election on July 29 concluded with a sharp controversy. Skeptical voter turnout, a number of spoilt ballots, election boycotts and a sweeping victory by the ruling Cambodian People Party (CPP) appeared in international media headlines. Shortly after the National Election Committee (NEC) announced the preliminary result, the US, the European Union, the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Germany expressed concern that the election was neither free nor fair and failed to justify the spirit of democracy in the absence of the banned opposition party, the Cambodian National Rescue Party (CNRP).

    Driving in reverse

    News, Published on 28/07/2018

    » Comparatively speaking, the conscripts/servants issue in the Thai armed forces is only adding to the military junta's declining image. Its continued existence only benefits a few thousand "generals", not the majority of the Thai armed forces or the country at large. In short, they are driving a car in reverse gear. It is clearly a conflict of interest, an important principle which should be tackled and utilised in the military junta's "reform policy".
