Pheu Thai party gives up demand for PM post and all political pre-conditions

In a last-ditch bid to win the support of the Democrat and Bhumjaithai parties to stop current Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha continuing in office, the Pheu Thai party has withdrawn its demand for the prime minister’s post and dropped all other political pre-conditions.

 

The party’s webpage today carries a statement from Khunying Sudarat Keyuraphan, the party’s election strategy chairman, saying she will not accept any cabinet portfolio in the new government, but pleading with all the pro-democracy parties to join forces to defeat a “dictatorship in disguise”.

 

“The opportunity for the country is more important than the opportunity for the Pheu Thai party. The opportunity for the people is a mission which is more important than the pursuit for power. Pheu Thai is ready to make sacrifices so there will be no conditions for political negotiations,” Sudarat was quoted to have said in the party’s statement.

There is a good reason why dems and bumj have not announced their alliance. 

 

They would be insane to pass up an offer like this. 

 

My only reservation is if they do succeed and keep Prayut and co out, in a very not distant future there could be yet another coup.

Sounds like the party of the future, putting the Thai people first and foremost.  Even that dizzy Abhisit would be better than a potentate coward like cha cha.

Good to see common sense and lack of self interest coming to the fore.Put DEMOCRACY and the country first and get rid of the military. The militaries role is to serve the country not run it.

Not a lack of self interest.. this has now got to a last ditch plea to them not to join with the Junta... the only way to do that is put the top spot up for grabs !

You actually believe that? A desperate plea from people who see they ain't gonna get control of the trough more like.

 

Nothing has really changed.

Indeed. And all the minister positions. Short term of course. Once in government the games can begin to take over for themselves. 

 

No one trusts them to honor their bargains. The other parties might not like the Junta but seem to be realizing they can get more off them.
