Pheu Thai chief Sompong Amornwiwat

 

Pheu Thai chief Sompong Amornwiwat on Saturday resigned as leader of the main opposition party.

 

 

In his resignation letter, Sompong said the current structure of the executive committee did not support executive members in performing their duties effectively and achieve the policy goals. He said it was appropriate that the executive committee be changed in order to help the party catch up with rapid social change, and work much more effectively. He added that he had decided to step down with immediate effect to pave the way for the election of a new committee.

Sompong was elected party leader on May 12 last year.

 

On Friday, Sudarat Keyuraphan announced her resignation as the party's chief strategist.

 

In a Facebook post on Friday evening, she said that although she was no longer the chief strategist, she was still a party member who was committed to working for the people and pushing for the amendment of the Constitution.

 

Also on Friday, four other members of Pheu Thai's strategic committee -- Kittiratt Na Ranong, Watana Muangsook, Phongthep Thepkanjana and Bhokin Balakul -- also posted on their Facebook pages that they had quit the committee.

Time for Oak to take the reins :coffee1:

Ha ha, Oak?  No, he is not all that popular from what I can see.   

 

Younger women would be a nice change, as they are leading the protests against cha cha and gang on the streets of Bangkok.

42 parties at last count. Probably more now. 2 parties seems to make people polarised and spiteful.

 

Maybe should consolidate some, reduce numbers. Make it realistic.

Well there was a 3rd popular party who recieved millions of votes, but that was seen as a threat to the others and were shown the door on trump-up reasons by the ruling self-appointed governnent and, it would seem they were seen as a threat to the others as i don't recall any assistsnce coming from them at the time.
