Paetongtarn gaining support to be next Thai Leader

Paetongtarn election candidate

The general who overthrew her aunt Yingluck Shinawatra in a coup nine years ago is still having trouble gaining support, but Paetongtarn Shinawatra and her Pheu Thai Party continue to be in the lead as the next general election draws near.

In a poll conducted in Chonburi province by the National Institute of Development Administration (Nida) from February 7 to February 14, 31% of eligible voters decided to support the daughter of former prime leader Thaksin Shinawatra, who was also overthrown in a coup.

Nida reported on Sunday that Pheu Thai was the winning party, with 38.82% of the province’s 1,100 inhabitants choosing both its candidates for the constituency and party lists.

For Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha, the findings are dismal.

Just 18.82% of those polled said they would support him for prime minister, while his recently founded United Thai Nation Party struggled to get beyond 16%.

Most national and local polls were won by Paetongtarn last year. According to polls, Prayut is more well-liked than she is in the South.

According to a Nida poll, Bangkok voters prefer Pita Limjaroenrat, the head of Move Forward, a different opposition group.

Together, Move Ahead and Phue Thai are a dominant force in Chonburi. One of them was selected by about 60% of survey participants as the best candidate to lead Thailand.
The current poll’s top choice for PM is still Thaksin’s daughter

The top 10 choices when asked who they would choose as the future prime minister were:

Paetongtarn, 31%

Prayut – 18.82%

  • 17.36%: Pita Limjaroenrat, the leader of the Go Ahead Party
  • 9.5%: Uncertain
  • 6.91%: Pol General Seri Temeeyaves, Chairman of the Seri Ruam Thai Party
  • 4.64%: Khunying Sudarat Keyuraphan, leader of the Thai Sang Thai Party
  • 3.18%: Anutin Charnvirakul, leader of the Bhumjaithai Party and minister of public health

2.45%: Korn Chatikavanij, the head of the Chart Pattanakla Party

  • 1.73%: Cholnan Srikaew, the head of the Pheu Thai Party

-1.00%: Deputy Prime Minister and head of the Palang Pracharath Party Prawit Wongsuwan

The top 10 answers to the question of which party they would support for constituency-based candidates were as follows:

  • Pheu Thai, 38.82%
  • 19.55%: Continue on

United Thai Nation 16.18%

Seri Ruam Thai, -4.73%

-4.5%: Uncertain

Palang Pracharath, 3.82%

Democrat: 3.27%

Thai Sang Thai, -2.64%

Bhumjaithai, -2.55%

-1.09%: Pattanakla Chart

The top 10 answers to the question of which party they would select for party-list candidates were:

  • Pheu Thai, 38.82%
  • 19.55%: Continue on

United Thai Nation, 16.09%

-5.55%: Uncertain

Seri Ruam Thai, 5%

Palang Pracharath, 3.82%

Democrat: 3.27%

Thai Sang Thai, -2.45%

2.27 percent: Bhumjaithai

-1.09%: Pattanakla Chart

The poll indicates that Sontaya Kunplome’s announcement earlier this month that he would lead his group of legislators in Chonburi back to Pheu Thai may have been influenced by the declining support of the ruling Palang Pracharath Party and Prayut.

Sontaya, the Palang Chon Party’s leader at the time, disbanded it prior to the 2019 elections in order to join the Palang Pracharath.
