Sonthaya's family sets up Palang Chon Party

Sonthaya Khunplome, a banned politician and former tourism and sport minister, said Thursday that his family has formed a new political party, with him serving as its adviser.
The name of the new political party - Palang Chon (Force of Chon Buri) - reflects its focus on the Khunplome family's stronghold of Chon Buri province.
Sonthaya said that his group decided to leave the coalition Bhum Jai Thai Party after residents of Chon Buri wanted them to form a new political party as "they think it is better suited for this political atmosphere".
