Pheu Thai dismisses report that Yingluck pushing for sister to lead party

Monthathip

 

BANGKOK: -- Pheu Thai secretary-general Phumtham Wechayachai held a press conference on Tuesday to reject speculation that Yingluck Shinawatra had been pushing for her sister, Monthathip, to lead the party.

 

Phumtham said Yingluck was busy with the criminal case against her and had hardly anything to do with the party’s business. 

 

The report that she was pushing for her sister to lead the party was erroneous, he added.

 

Moreover, Monthathip had not shown any interest in politics, he said. 

 

In any case, he stressed, it was too soon to be talking about Pheu Thai’s leadership, and the party would choose an appropriate time to discuss the issue. 

 

The new leader, Phumtham said, would be chosen “to fit the situation”, and the party had plenty of quality people to choose from.

What a joke.

 

Everyone knows who will choose the leader. Must be spoiled for choice though with all those "quality people" to select from! :whistling:

"But at a wild guess their family-name will probably start with an "S"  ... ", as former-DPM Chalerm might once have said  :whistling:

 

 

 

" Yingluck was busy with the criminal case against her and had hardly anything to do with the party’s business. "

 

So was she ever its real leader, she certainly appears to have been cast aside now, so much for family-loyalty once her usefulnesss is past !  One might almost feel sorry for YL.

To be fair, she may still be very useful as a martyr. Er, for the greater good, of course.:whistling:

I thought it was supposed to be  ...  "for the cause of popular democracy"  :wink:

 

 

But it's come to something, when PTP admit that the 'peoples' heroine' has " hardly anything to do with the party’s business. " ! :wacko:

She's not as hot as her sister, don't they have someone with better screen presence? It'd make watching the drama more pleasant.

Like that good joke when they thought they could put a telephone pole up as candidate and still win the Bangkok governor election. Or the Don Meuang bye-election was so safe some flunky gave up his party list seat to win it.

 

They were good ones too.

they think voting is all what matters

To be fair that's a sentiment (albeit falsely) promoted by Prayut as well.

Have elections and show the world that Thailand has restored democracy. Only smoke but no fire of freedom.

 

With an autocratic Constitution stacked against any elected government, armed with a mandatory junta 20-year "reform plan," provisions for a legal military coup, a pro-autocratic Constitutional Court and an autocratic Senate that includes NCPO leadership set to override any undesirable elected government agenda makes a mockery of any Thai election being part of a democratic institution. 

 

If the so-called "red shirts" think voting is all that matters, the autocracy has won permanent control of the Thai people with a very small concession. Prayut and his fellow oligarchy should celebrate the idea that voting is all that matters to making Thailand a democracy. Fool the people once, fool them every time.

Really? If that's the case, why have they been using the Shin family?
