Thailand's new PM unveils policies

BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) -- Thailand's new prime minister presented parliament Monday with his coalition government's proposed policies, a plan denounced by critics as a resurrection of deposed leader Thaksin Shinawatra's populist agenda.

Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej's plans to revive cheap health care for the poor, debt suspension for farmers and other hallmarks of the Thaksin administration were expected to win parliamentary approval after a three-day debate.

Samak's coalition government holds two-thirds of the seats in the 480-member lower house of parliament.
