Phiraphan quits Democrat party after 30 years




Democrat MP Phiraphan Saleeratthavipark, after almost 30 years with the party, quit today, saying he never thought this day would come.


In his letter of resignation letter, Phiraphan gave no reason for his abrupt departure. In a Facebook post, he thanked senior party members, colleagues and party’s staff for their support and thanked the party for giving him the opportunity to work for the people for almost three decades.


Phiraphan didn’t say whether he will join another or what he intends to do hereafter. On November 25th, Phraphan wrote on his Facebook page about the resignation from the party of former MP Warong Dejgitvigrom, asking why the party seems unable to retain good people.

It should be a problem for a democrat to stay in a "Democrat" party that sides with the junta. I understand this man!

I'm not sure you do. He sympathises with Dr Warong who lost the leadership contest to Jurin. Warong has been running a campaign against the Future Forward party, accusing them of being unpatriotic for wanting to abolish conscription. Warong wants the Democrat Party to be more right-wing.

Both are likely to join Suthep's party, ardent fans of a military government.
