Investors show nerves ahead of Thai poll

The prospect of fresh political turmoil has prompted nervous foreign investors

to dump Thai stocks ahead of next Sunday’s general election.


Overseas investors have withdrawn more than $1bn from the Thai stock market, according to some estimates, since Yingluck Shinawatra – sister of Thailand’s divisive former leader Thaksin Shinawatra – took over the leadership of the country’s main opposition party, Puea Thai.
