Former Thai Prime Minister, Thaksin Shinawatra, has ruled out immediately returning to his home country despite his sister's landslide election victory. Speaking from Dubai, the deposed former leader praised the Thai people for turning out to vote in large numbers and gave his vision of a new government.

He said, "Let's start the new government with the new approach with the new attitude that we want to invite everyone to set the difference for what we can work together, for what we can do together for the country and for the people, so just forget the past."

Thaksin said reconciliation in Thailand is more important than his return to the country after five years in exile. He also pointed out that the Thai people did not vote for him, but for the Pheu Thai party. He added that he would assist in national reconciliation, but only if requested by the new government.
