Party leader may not be contender for top govt job, in a ploy to survive another dissolution

The opposition Pheu Thai Party will announce its candidate for the next prime minister as soon as the government calls for dissolution of the House of Representatives, fugitive ex-PM Thaksin Shinawatra said in a message on Sunday night.

One of the party’s key leaders told The Nation: “It’s not necessary to announce [a prime-ministerial candidate] before the House dissolution. It is clear-cut that Thaksin is our selling point.”

Despite being ousted in the 2006 coup and exiled since 2008, Thaksin still dictates to his party – no matter its name, People Power Party or Pheu Thai Party. Whoever leads the party is still Thaksin’s nominee.
