THE COMMONERS PARTY has become the country’s only camp to send a lone candidate running for MP in constituency-based mode for the May 14 general election.
The lone Commoners contender vying in constituency-based mode, namely Suradej Kaewkalaya, applied today (Apr.4) only to enable six other candidates of the same camp to run in party-listed mode.
The election law calls for a party to send at least one candidate contesting in constituency-based mode in the first place so that a list of others may run in party-listed mode.
Suradej, known as a political and social activist who is contesting Constituency 4 of Khon Kaen which locates his home district of Nam Pong, was a desperate also-ran for MP of the northeastern province in the 2019 general election.
Vying in party-listed mode among five other running mates is Commoners secretary-general Suriya Saengkaewfun, also known as a political and social activist.
In the previous election, the Khon Kaen-based Commoners secured some 5,000 votes from constituents nationwide.
