Following their victory in the general election, the current opposition parties have begun coalition negotiations. The Move Forward party, which obtained the majority of seats in the lower house, is currently in charge of forging a coalition.
Pheu Thai Party is the main partner in the Move Forward Party’s (MFP) bid to establish a coalition government with other opposition parties.Pita Limjaroenrat, the party leader, assigned MFP Secretary General Chaithawat Tulathon to communicate with opposition parties, particularly Pheu Thai Party, according to Tulathong. The leaders of the Pheu Thai, Prachachart, Thai Sang Thai, Thai Liberal, and Fair parties will be called directly by Mr. Pita.
Mr. Chaithawat stated that the party plans to host a formal meeting and give the media additional information this week.Despite winning the majority of seats in the lower house, the MFP-led coalition will likely have a difficult time installing its leader, Pita Limjaroenrat, as prime minister because 250 senators will participate in the voting.
According to Mr. Chaithawat, the MFP is still debating whether to ask the Bhumjaithai Party to raise their hands in support of Mr. Pita. He added that it would be a positive change if the Bhumjaithai and Democrat parties listened to the will of the voters.The secretary general of the MFP noted that the party has not yet contacted the Chart Thai Pattana party because it is planning to concentrate on opposition parties for the time being. The party is still convinced that its present coalition-building strategy will get enough support and that it will obtain 376 votes to appoint the PM.
Mr. Chaithawat stated that the MFP is prepared to speak with the Senate because he believes the senators have the best interests of the nation in mind and do not want to see the country into a state of impasse.
