As Pinit Ngarmpring, he was a CEO and sports promoter, well known in the world of Thai football. Now, under her preferred new name of Pauline Ngarmpring, she’s pursuing a bid to become the country’s first transgender prime minister. 

 

The 52-year-old is one of three candidates put forward by a political party for the post in next month’s general election.

 

She says she wants her nomination to bring hope to the marginalised and open up political space for future generations of LGBT+ people.

Nothing against the gender but countries need a person with morals and empathy in charge not people with strong ties in the business world. No one like trump for example

Wishing her/him good luck. Lots of badly needed luck.

But imagine. So the story goes, Trump ran but never expected to win. He just wanted the exposure apparently. Maybe Pinit will have the same "luck".

Hello Russia. Pinit here. Can you help?

We have many of these career politicians in germany that never worked a single day in theit life. They are far away from the struggle of an average german. 

 

I would argue that every self made businessman who takes cares of employees is a better fit for the job as he's way closer to the people. 

 

 

But with self made i mean people like the above mentioned and not the ultra rich thai hiso who got his/her money from his daddy.
