New Party leaves Move Forward-led coalition


By Thai Newsroom Reporters

THE NEW PARTY has today (May 20) withdrawn from a Move Forward-led coalition which is now having eight partners with a united force of 313 MPs.

New Party leader Kridithat Sangthanayothin confirmed the one-MP party has finally decided to leave the Move Forward-led coalition in the wake of vehement criticism launched online over his party’s stance against a Move Forward campaign promise to amend the lese majeste law.

But the New Party leader confirmed that as an MP he will definitely join others to vote for Move Forward leader Pita Limjaroenrat for prime minister.

Given the withdrawal of the New Party, eight other parties are currently staying as Move Forward-led coalition partners with a combined total of 313 MPs at their command.

Pita is now needing at least 63 more votes from lawmakers in both the House of Representatives and Senate to become prime minister.
