The coalition will receive 309 seats from the alliance, which also includes the Thai Sang Thai, Prachachart, Thai Liberal, and Fair parties. The 376 seats required to guarantee Move Forward leader Pita Limjaroenrat the presidency, however, will still be unmet with 309 seats.
Pita claimed that despite this, the five parties are prepared to talk about specifics like personnel, guidelines, and a schedule. In order to ensure transparency, he also stated that his party would create a memorandum of understanding with the five parties.
He asserted that a combination of six political groups would be sufficient to form a majority government.
Pita also mentioned that the Move Forward executive committee will convene on Monday in the late afternoon to develop a plan for addressing both new and old issues, such as growing the economy and lowering inequality.
The Move Forward leader continued by saying that in addition to speaking at a gathering at the Democracy Monument in Bangkok, he will traverse the entire nation to thank people for their votes.
Even if that means he oversees numerous ministries for a period, he said he will set up a government as quickly as possible to ensure that people begin receiving benefits immediately away.When asked if Move Forward has thought about joining forces with the Bhumjaithai Party, he responded that he must uphold the pledge made by his party to only create coalitions with opposition parties.
Bhumjaithai belonged to the previous coalition.
He promised to bring up the matter of changing the lese majeste law in Parliament and added that it would simply be “amended” to ensure that no one would be harmed.
Many pro-democracy demonstrators are incarcerated on lese majeste charges.
Pita claimed that political dispute is common and that democracy is the best way to resolve it. To resolve this issue, he added, may require some time and persistence.
Despite winning 151 seats, Move Forward will need to form a coalition with other parties in order to establish the government.
