Pheu Thai-Future Forward ties will be tested

Political breakups normally don’t occur while the parties concerned are in the opposition bloc. There may be signs, though, and the case in point is the relationship between the Pheu Thai and Future Forward parties.

 

So far, the signs have been subtle. But while they can be dismissed as normal because both parties are big, widely-encompassing organizations, the signs have to do with their main purpose _ winning elections.

 

A news report last week suggested that Yaowapa Wongsawat, Pheu Thai’s biggest behind-the-scene influence, is well aware of Future Forward’s threat when the next election comes, which can be sooner rather than later. She has been telling national politicians of her party, particularly those in the North, that they must help local Pheu Thai politicians win rural elections. What appear to be trivial victories can go a long way toward maintaining the party’s dominance in the northern region.

But bottom line she's a shin = no respect for the law.

No respect for the law doesn't seem particularly unusual in Thailand's political scene.or any other scenes in Thailand.Yet most seem to try and use the "law" to say how crooked the other side is and how they cannot be trusted!

On grass roots level at local elections there won’t be much competition between them. Voters get their opinions from social media, not from parliament debates or political propaganda from the Head Office. 

 

Actually, pt and ff are not voting machines, they offered ministerial posts to anybody agreeing with their frame program, so are breaking political party bonduaries. They did cooperate during election campaign. Candidates from the dissolved pt sister party were urging to vote for ff. In chachongsaeo their candidate printed posters to swift voters to ff

If they act as badly as coalition junta, the country will be in peril   A very low bar has been set for Thailand.  Doubtful it could get lower.

I didn't say that, in fact I've criticized them many times including their lack of respect and lack of credibility and morals.
