Palang Pracharat leader ready to form coalition government

The pro-Prayut Palang Pracharat party leader announced late last night that the party is ready to take the lead in forming a coalition government.

 

Mr. Uttama Savanayana said that the party had already approached some allies, which he declined to name until unofficial results of the election are announced by the Election Commission (EC), adding that the party would try to get as many as 250 parliamentary votes in order to form a coalition government.

 

He said he had already spoken to the party’s prime ministerial candidate, incumbent Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, who thanked all party members for their contribution to the election.

A task make harder due to FFP massive win. Well unless they go with their fall back plan to dissolve FFP.

He might be ready, but in good democratic tradition, the biggest party is the one to make a move.

Lets hope not, but if they do would that not mean a new election ? How would they calculate it.

 

Anyway I looked at coalitions and for both the PTP and Palang Pracharat it will be real hard to get a large enough majority.

Yes your right but whoever is going to make the move it will be hard for both sides. For the PTP it will be easier to get a majority in parliament but not easy to get the 375 (stupid that the senate can vote for a PM) 

 

For the junta party it will be hard to get a majority in parliament but easy to get to the 375 to choose the prime minister. 

 

Hard spot for all of them, but I agree let the PTP try first despite their huge loss (only to be eclipsed by the loss of votes by the democrats) they are still the biggest party.

Your reply to Sjaak is what I am referring to. No chance for government but a toss for Parliament. If FFP win more than 80 seats and with PTP/other like minded parties 160-170, they will take Parliament. 

 

The computation for Palang Pracharat and possible Dem, BJT and ACT will not make 250. FFP really throw a spanner into the computation plus the Dem losing so many seats.

From a Thai friend on Saturday evening.

 

"BREAKING—Latest private polling by political parties and independent agencies confirms my prediction that Pheu Thai + Future Forward + Pheu Chart will probably win more than 250 seats, a majority in parliament but far below what they need to appoint a prime minister.
 

This means dissolution of Pheu Thai and/or Future Forward is looking increasingly likely. 
 
We are facing another Thai political crisis."

 

Your Thai friend was wrong.. they are 25 seats short of 250 (in the latest count)

It was always 100% clear that it would be Prayut as PM and so this is not a loss for me as that much was always clear.

 

I was hoping for a coalition government with Pro democracy groups forming the majority. This is where the fun really starts because it will be complete and utter Chaos and uncle will not know whether he is coming or going.

 

But in that basis I would say 90% certain that FFP are dissolved

119 (PP)+52 BJT and 55 democrat = 226 

If they can persuade the smaller parties then they could just about make it. (would still be hard i think so many parties but it happens in my country)

 

PTP 135 + 86 FF + 52 BJT = 273  .. so yes parliament will work.. PM wont work

 

Just stupid that the senators can vote for the PM. totally stupid rule.

 

What i wonder is if FF goes in a coalition with PTP and BJT will they accept all the corruption that comes with it or will they be strong enough to blow it up when it gets too bad.

Everyone will want to be on the Palang Pracharat government....easiest route to the trough with less likelihood of disruption when feeding their fat faces for the next 20 plus years....PP control army and EC and anti corruption people so it’s a no brainer.

 

Principles certainly will not enter into it.
