The verdict of the Constitution Court in Bangkok on 29 November 2010 dismissed the dissolution case against Thailand's ruling Democrat Party over the alleged paying of Bt29 million ($960,000) to an advertising firms, despite having permission to spend only Bt19 million in this election campaign(2005), saying the filing complaint process lodged by the Election Commission (EC) was unlawful because the EC ruled by majority vote to consider the Democrat Party dissolution case on Dec 17, 2009, but that the Registrar of Political Parties, as plaintiff, filed the complaint to the court on April 26, 2010, exceeding the 15-date timeline as required by the law.
After the verdict, Criticism came from every nook and corner of Thai society while the Thai Prime Minister, Mr. Abhisit Vejajiva said ‘The urgent tasks of the government are to restore the flood-affected areas and to speed up the reconciliation process’ He ask Thai people to have faith in constitution court ruling and, prepared to handle whatever will happen and refuses to give any statement about another Democrat party accusation of Bt258 million illegal receiving donation from TPI Polene in the same election. The red shirts, the opposition party supporters were utterly disgusted by the Constitution Court's dubious ruling and the Election Commission's subsequent explanation about why they supposedly failed to file the electoral fraud case against the Democrat Party on time. The ‘Yellow Shirts’, known as the royalist who against both ‘Red Shirts’ and democratic party had bitterly acknowledged the verdict of constitution court. “There will be pressure from the Red Shirts about judicial double standards,” said Somjai Phagaphasvivat, a lecturer at Bangkok’s Thammasat University. “The tension won’t be as high as earlier this year because the government has the upper hand working in unity with the military to handle any protests.”
Meanwhile, A group of 30 individuals, dressed in black, on Tuesday rallied in front of the Constitution Court to air their opposition to the verdict allowing the Democrats to escape disbandment. The protesters, led by Palot Chalermsaen of the Justice Lovers Group, held a mock funeral and tied black cloth in gesture of mourning for what they said alack of justice at the high court. "A vast number of people are confused because they don't understand the verdict" Palot said. The judges should step out to explain their decision clearly.

 “It was unexpected verdict from the constitution court, too easy” Banharn Silapaarcha former prime minister of dissolved Thai party.
“It is double standard verdict, completely different from Thai Rak Thai judgment , the constitution court will have responsibility for its own fame and reliability” Chaturon Chaiseng former finance minister and executive committee dissolved Thai Rak Thai party.

How do we survive if there's no institution we can count on any longer? The question from working class red shirt supporter in Samut Prakan province.
Is this the preliminary sound of anarchy, chaos and perhaps the end of a functioning society, or a sound of blessing in disguise? Does the practice of double standard will exist in Thai society up to the end of the world? And Does the Thai society will never get out from the stone age circle? Some of the disappointed voice from the members of Thai society.

Since the 2006 military coup, the Constitutional Court has dissolved the former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra’s Thai Rak Thai party, former Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej’s People Power Party, former Prime Minister Banharn Silpa-Archa’s Thai Party.
