Pheu Thai Party gives its backing for Thanathorn’s rally

The Pheu Thai Party is fully backing the rally being held Saturday (December 14) by Future Forward Party (FFP) leader Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, and has told its members they were free to attend the event.

 

 

Thanathorn, whose party faces a case for dissolution in the Constitutional Court, has invited his supporters to join him at a rally on Saturday at 5pm at the Pathumwan intersection skywalk on Rama I Road.

 

Phumtham Wechayachai, adviser to the opposition leader in the House of Representatives and adviser to the Pheu Thai Party leader, said on Friday (December 13) that his sympathies were with Future Forward and the two parties were on the same page: on the side of democracy. “What has happened is proof that we are walking on the right path towards democracy, which is filled with hardship and requires great patience,” he said.

 

“If any Pheu Thai Party members would like to join Thanathorn’s rally, they can do so as long as they follow the law and follow the principles of democracy,” he added.

 

Thanathorn's call for a rally on Friday came after the Election Commission earlier in the week petitioned the Constitutional Court to dissolve Future Forward over Thanathorn's Bt191-million loan to the party, which it alleged was illegal for a political party.

 

The Constitutional Court had in November disqualified Thanathorn as a member of Parliament, ruling that he had violated the law by registering to run in the March election while still holding shares in a media company.

I think it would have been better to actually encourage them to join the rally (against the Junta government), as opposed to suggesting they are free to do so. Doesn't show much encouragement from Pheu Thai, the way he phrased it.

People say Thai people are complacent and the over 35 crowd are probably complacent. Yet, less and less of the young up and coming middle class are loyal to the old guard. University and high school students despise Prayut as a general rule. This is going to come to a head and Thailand could be headed towards another 'October 6, 1976 event.'

October 14th 1973 please. Not October 6th 1976.

He's playing the usual PTP game. Get someone else to do the dirty work if you can - then if it all goes wrong they can take the blame and PTP can deny any involvement.

No its not. They had they're say when the voted.

 

It's telling people, specifically politicians, that they must make sure they're squeaky clean because if they come to the attention of those in power they will be put under the microscope. And anything found can and will be used if deemed appropriate.

Most of the billionaires in Thailand support your green mob.   The red mob, as you call them, are supported by humble Thais.

How many of the red mob go only to the streets if they are paid, get free rides, free food, etc?

And how many of them have their own thoughts and not just repetitions of what those billionaires told them?

 

I know Prayut's government is far away from perfect. But when I think about the time with the last billionaire and his little sister I prefer Prayut every day.
