Thai coalition parties meet today with top jobs up for grabs

Pita Limjaroenrat moves to form coalition

The members of Thailand’s new 8-party coalition meet today and the leader of the Move Forward Party is in no doubt about what will be top of the agenda. Pita Limjaroenrat says the transition to power will be a priority topic, to ensure there is no gap in Thailand’s administration, according to a Nation Thailand report.

Pita says the coalition parties will also discuss the rising cost of living, including fuel and electricity bills, and the issue of drought.

“We must come up with guidelines on these issues, so the government can tackle them immediately.”

The allocation of ministerial roles is also expected to be on today’s agenda but the Move Forward leader would not be drawn on the matter, insisting that coalition members are focused on easing the financial hardship of the Thai people. He points out that tackling the issue of drought is likely to require collaboration between 5 or 6 different ministries.

Pita also met recently with Bangkok governor, Chadchart Sittipunt, when they discussed how the Move Forward Party and the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration could work together on a number of issues affecting the capital, including dredging and land tax.

“Once the government is set up, we will tackle problems to improve Bangkokians’ quality of life.”

The newly-formed coalition, comprising the Move Forward Party, Pheu Thai Party, Thai Sang Thai Party, Prachachart Party, Seree Ruam Thai Party, Pheu Thai Ruam Palang Party, Fair Party, and the Plung Sungkom Mai Party, has already signed a memorandum of understanding, prior to forming Thailand’s new government.
