PPRP Brushes Away Speculation That Prayuth Could Be Replaced As Candidate For PM


The ruling Palang Pracharath Party (PPRP) reaffirmed its support for Prayuth Chan-o-cha as a prime ministerial candidate in the next general election, after its lawmaker said Prawit Wongsuwon should be the sole nominee.

  • PPRP deputy leader Chaiwut played down comments by his colleague Rong and said the party did not discuss replacing Prayuth as its only prime ministerial candidate, the Bangkok Post reports.
  • The recent court ruling allows Prayuth to remain in office until 2025, which means he would have to step down before the next parliament completes its term.
  • The latest NIDA opinion poll published on Sunday showed that Prayuth was the most popular prime ministerial candidate among residents of the southern provinces, garnering 23.9% of the vote.
  • When asked about their party of choice, about 27% said they would vote for the Democrat Party and 15% backed the main opposition Pheu Thai Party. The PPRP was picked by 11% of respondents.
