Thailand got its third prime minister in four months on Dec. 15, after former opposition leader Abhisit Vejjajiva was voted into power in a deal that many hope will end six months of political paralysis. Mr Vejjajiva, a 44-year-old UK-born economist, won a parliamentary vote that was called after Somchai Wongsawat was removed from office 10 days ago by the country’s constitutional Court, which found his party guilty of irregularities in elections held last December.
