Asian Leaders by FlaxmanR

Question 6

One of the richest men in Thailand when he became prime minister in 2001, he remains popular with large segments of the population there in spite of the fact that both he and his sister Yingluck, who won elections in 2011 as their party’s standard bearer, were convicted of abuses of power and had their governments dissolved by military coups. Who is this one-time Thai leader, perhaps best known in the West for his yearlong stint as the owner of Manchester City Football Club?

Thaksin Shinawatra
