Former PM Somchai leads former People Power executives to join Pheu Thai

Former prime minister Somchai Wongsawat and former deputy leader of the dissolved People Power party on Tuesday led former People Power executives to apply for Pheu Thai party membership.

Those joining Pheu Thai included Noppadol Pattama, Chusak Sirinil, Prasong Buranapong, and Sutha Chansaeng.

Their five-year political ban expired on Monday.

They were welcomed at the Pheu Thai head office by Pheu Thai leader Charupong Ruangsuwan and Pheu Thai secretary-general Phutham Wechayachai.

Charupong told Somchai that he has been waiting for Somchai for five years.

Somchai said he decided to join the Pheu Thai because it is a party that deserves public faith. He said he has faith in the party leader, its executives and policies so he decided to join the Pheu Thai after completing the ban period.
