The article presents the emergence of political participation in Thailand. To examine a po-litical participation in Thailand, it is necessary to describe its history of democracy, which brought from Europe. Because of the different culture, history, and structure of government, the democracy of Thailand is still not developed. Apart from the history of democracy, the article also defines the intention to make the election more open, fair and meaningful. Research methodologies were a comparative historical method and comparative political analysis to the relationship of the factors influencing the occurrence and movement of political participation in Thailand.
