Chart Pattana Kla excluded from Move Forward-led coalition


By Thai Newsroom Reporters

THE CONSERVATIVE CHART PATTANA KLA has been finally excluded from a Move Forward-led coalition government.

The Move Forward-led coalition currently consists of nine partners without the Chart Pattana Kla which has only two MPs amidst vehement protests from the Move Forward rank and file and members of the public.

Late last night, the Move Forward issued a statement apologising to the public for Thursday’s effort to bring the Chart Pattana Kla into the Move Forward-led coalition and to assure that the conservative party co-headed by Suvat Liptapanlop and Korn Chatikavanich has now been excluded.

The latest move toward the setting up of a post-election government is seeing the progressive party-led coalition with nine partners and a united force of 314 MPs, including 152 Move Forward MPs, 141 Pheu Thai MPs, 9 Prachachart MPs, 6 Thai Sang Thai MPs, two Pheu Thai Ruam Palang MPs, one Thai Liberal MP, one Fair Party MP, one Palang Sangkhom Mai MP and one New Party MP.

Nevertheless, Move Forward leader Pita Limjaroenrat is needing yea votes from 62 more lawmakers to make it adequate for the naming of him as prime minister in a joint House/Senate session to be scheduled in near future.

The military-designed constitution calls for a partisan candidate for prime minister to secure yea votes from more than half the combined total of 500 MPs and 250 senators or at least 376 votes.
