‘Hire my party for Bt100 to fight for democracy’: Thanathorn

By The Nation

 

Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, co-founder of the Future Forward Party, on Saturday called on Thais to hire his party to fight for the return of full democracy to the country by paying a Bt100membership fee to the party.

 

Thanathorn, who is expected to be elected as the party leader once an assembly is held, posted a two-minute video clip on his Facebook wall, urging people to apply in join his party, with each member paying a Bt100 membership fee.

 

“Thais are now reaching a crucial crossroad,” he said.

 

“Will they choose to stay with fear and dictatorship power, allowing them to draw a line for us to walk for at least 20 more years to the direction unilaterally set by them?,” he asked.

 

“Or will Thais choose to have the people, who own the ruling mandate, to determine our own fate?”

 

He continued: “This is a new political culture that will wipe out the patronage system in Thai society. The membership fee of B100 is the fee for hiring me and the Future Forward team to take back democracy.

 

“The country needs us and Future Forward wants you," Thanathorn said in the clip, which generated over 51,000 views by Saturday afternoon.

 

Thanathorn and Future Forward are seen as attracting the younger generations, who are well versed in using media to win support.

I love the words and the sentiment, I just doubt the ability to deliver at the moment. But, I would be very, very pleased to be wrong about that.

 

Good luck, young man.

 

 

 

Agree, and my Thai son, who follows Thai politics closely is hoping this guy is a new style politician with the country and all Thais being his main concern, however my son has negative concerns that this guy has connections to pt and to thaksin. 

 

I hope this concern is wrong, we wait and see.

Another billionaire that desires the head-of-state....

With deeper connections than what he leads on to. 

 

The new changes.

The new future. 

All about the people.

 

 

Indeed.

We'll see.

I believe paying the electorate to vote for you, rather than charging them a fee, has been proved to be the better policy in previous elections.

 How true, but also took Thailand nowwhere.

 

IMHO it would be more productive to drop all references to being paid (either direction) and try to move to gaining votes because of balanced policies benefiting all Thais and taking Thailand forward and solid real reforms especially 1) Education and 2). the RTP; and showing that the party has highly capable people who can focus on development and reform with valuable noticeable results.

Thailand has waited nearly a century for a man with this commitment towards his fellows. Let's hope that enough Thais see him for what he is and for what he could bring to their lives . . . and let's hope they can stump-up the B100, too.

"Idealists", voted in for their political program, nearly always have a tendency to be encapsulated into the existing political culture.

Nearly all politicians go into politics for the power, the money or a combination of the two.
