Pheu Thai turns to Thaksin’s son to woo Democrats and Bhumjaithai

With time running out, and desperate to form a majority pro-democracy government, the Pheu Thai party has resorted to enlisting the help of Mr. Panthongtae Shinawatra, the only son of fugitive former prime minister Thaksin, to extend invitations to the Democrat and Bhumjaithai parties to join the Pheu Thai-led coalition.

 

Using Oak Panthongtae Shinawatra’s Facebook page, the Pheu Thai party reminded the Democrats of their previous public announcements about not supporting General Prayut Chan-o-cha’s continuation as prime minister and promise not to work with the pro-junta party.

 

The party also reminded the Bhumjaithai party of its pledge to work with the coalition which commands the majority vote in parliament.

It's hard to understand how this is the right guy to negotiate.

Right! Sounds like desperation. What's next? Free holidays in Dubai for all?

Forget the Shinawatra family, none of this family has so far been able to pay the consequences for what they did, with the money stolen from the people they have only been able to escape, cowardly behavior!

Message is right, but not sure how Oak enjoys any sway over these parties unless they are friends privately.   The fact they are thinking of siding with the military is a travesty to the country.

OK  The Dem party has been fighting with Thaksin for how many decades,  I think the PT is in a deep denial stage.  The guy that should be doing all the negotiating is Thanatorn and the FF PT should like the Dems realize that they are in need of a makeover.

 

A better suggestion is to let the PPP set up the government without the support of any of the major parties.  Let them show that they can work with others and that they can form temporary bonds for the betterment of the country.

 

Imagine if they the Dems BJT and FF all decided that they were going to become the loyal opposition and the PT or PPP had to negotiate each thins they wanted to do without having a majority of power.

It's all a bit of a farce no matter what happens.

 

Regardless of who cobbles together a Government, the fact that the Senate is appointed by NCPO, the real power still lies with the military and the 'good people'

 

Welcome to Thailand!
