Please join the Atlantic Council's South Asia Center for a  discussion with Umesh Pandey, Founding Member of the Moving Forward for Democracy Movement of Thailand, to discuss the country's upcoming elections and democratic movement.

Mr. Pandey will discuss challenges facing upcoming elections in the Kingdom of Thailand, scheduled for March 24. Uncertainty has been cast over the country's democratic future following the banning and dissolution of the opposition Thai Raksa Chart party by the military government. Despite recent setbacks, opposition leaders have come together under the new Moving Forward for Democracy movement to continue to contest the elections, just weeks before voting is scheduled to begin. The event is open to press and on the record.
