The Pheu Thai party is ready to form a coalition government with its six allies once the Election Commission has announced the official results of the March-24 general election, said party secretary-general Phumtham Wechayachai today.

 

Speaking after a meeting of core party members and prospective MPs, Phumtham insisted that the party which won the most seats in the House of Representatives should have the first priority to form a government.

 

He also warned the Election Commission to be honest and play by the rule in announcing the poll results.

A seven party coalition, that's going to be fun.

It will be interesting who Pheu Thai sides with to be PM. My call will be Thanathorn from FFP. A coalition government is possible as they in general all have same certain ideals and interests, and then only thing left is the bartering and deals will to be made behind the scenes to keep them all happy. Now the Junta lover parties will not be so happy as left out in the cold, but it will be fun to watch before the next possible coup occurs.

Whilst I can follow your reasoning, I would anticipate that as no one is actually running the country now effectively and fairly, then, irrespective of the number of coalition partners, it will still effectively, be answerable and controlled by the same "click" that benefits from it now.

Phumtham can insist as much as he likes but it is not who gets the largest percent of the vote that claims governance but who can get a group together that is 50% plus of the seats won.
