Iran Welcomes Massive Turnout in Thai Parliamentary Elections

The general election took place throughout Thailand on Sunday, 3 July 2011.

A proposal to hold the elections on 14 November 2010 had earlier been made, but the date was pushed back and as of January 2011, it had not been rescheduled.

Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva's announcement to hold this election came following months of unrest by United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD) or 'Red Shirt' supporters of former PM Thaksin Shinawatra. The opposition expressed qualified support for the plan, but wanted parliament to be dissolved.

With an overall turnout of 66%, populist Pheu Thai Party won majority with 265 seats, with its leader Yingluck Shinawatra becoming the first female prime minister in the history of Thailand.

The Democrats became the main opposition party with 159 seats.

Mehmanparast in the meantime congratulated the Pheu party leader Shinawatra on the landslide victory.
