Yingluck says toppling democracy is a tremendous loss if no concrete reforms are achieved

Former prime minister Ms Yingluck Shinawatra said she saw no concrete political, economical and social reforms in three years after the military junta seized power from her democratic government on May 22, 2014.

It would be a tremendous loss if no concrete reforms are achieved, she said.

Posting her comment on Facebook page on the reforms pledged by the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) after the third anniversary of the military coup, Ms Yingluck said today marked the third anniversary of the military take-over from her government.

She recalled one of the major reasons cited by the military to seize power from her democratic government was attributed to political conflicts.

The military wanted to resolve the national conflicts and restore national unity back to the country as soon as possible. It also pledged to reform the country's political, economical and social structures to bring happiness to the people and the country, she said.

All reforms were meant for creating justice to all sides, and for peace and reconciliation in the country so that all conflicts would be resolved and settled, and the country stays with pride in the global communities

But she said after three years in power she didn't see any concrete structural reforms on these aspects promised by the military junta.

She said the three years time would be wasteful if no concrete reforms are achieved as the country has already suffered tremendous economic damage from the toppling of the country's democracy.
