Chartthaipattana seen eyeing coalition spot
19 Sep 2017 at 04:00
The Chartthaipattana Party is throwing its weight behind Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha to continue running the country for the next 10 years, on the condition he helps boost people’s incomes.
Chartthaipattana was formerly known as the Chart Thai Party.
Former deputy party leader Prapat Pothasuthon voiced his support for the idea Monday, as he and other key party figures greeted Gen Prayut on his visit to the Thailand Rice Science Institute in Muang district of Suphan Buri, the stronghold of Chartthaipattana, Monday.
Mr Samart stressed Pheu Thai is ready to form a government if it receives a majority vote and would serve as the main opposition party if that doesn’t happen.
“If attempts are made to force us to proceed with an undemocratic approach by supporting someone who has not entered the election process [to become the prime minister], we will not do so. We will not support an outsider prime minister for sure,” Mr Samart added.
