Opposition Not Particpating in Special Election?

So what happens when the Prime Minister dissolves the Parliament and calls for a special election, but the three main opposition parties cry foul and insist they will send no candidates to the election?

That's what might be happening today in Thailand. The Democratic, Chart Thai, and Mahachon Party are threatening that they will not have any candidates in the special election because Thaksin didn't play fair in his actions on Friday.

So if the opposition parties don't, ahem, show up to the party, then does that mean that Thaksin's party will get even more than their current 75% of the vote?

This is getting more and more interesting all the time...
