Fortune teller's prediction gets thumbs up from PM

Prime Minister Hun Sen posted a four-month-old prediction from a Thai fortune teller on his Facebook page yesterday, claiming its forecast of the opposition party’s downfall was spot on.

The prediction, published last September, said the opposition was doomed due to its “dishonest” ways, such as a purported attempt to overthrow the government by using border disputes with Vietnam for political gain.

“I saw this four days ago and took the opportunity to read it, and I saw some points, which said that some politicians wanted to cheat me, but I realised this and destroyed their evil tricks.

This point was perfectly correct,” the premier’s post reads. “I would like to send a message that all of you who think they can cheat Hun Sen but who are not yet born not to try and cheat me – you must be honest if you want to play with Hun Sen.”

The prediction’s author is fortune teller Pinyo Pongcharoen.

CNRP spokesman Yem Ponhearith said the opposition was not concerned with the prediction. “Our political platform for participating in future elections is realistic, and the fortune teller has a personal view that has no impact on the CNRP,” he said.
