Several former Thai Rak Thai executives applied for membership of the Pheu Thai Party Thursday, the first day after they exit the fiveyear political ban.
They started arriving at the Pheu Thai head office at 9:30 am.
The first group of former Thai Rak Thai executives who arrived included Warathep Ratanakorn, Wan Muhamad Noor Matha, Wichet Kasemthongsri, Virakarn Musigapong, Suporn Atthawong, Ladawal Wonsriwong, Sermsak Pongpanit and Wichit Plungsrikul.
Virakarn, formerly known as Vira and former chairman of the United Front of Democracy against Dictatorship, said he was willing to help any work of the party in any position.
He said he would not discuss now as to whether he would be given a Cabinet seat or not.
Virakarn said he was confident that his experience in coordination with the redshirt people would help increase stability for the government.
Warathep said former Thai Rak Thai executives would apply for Pheu Thai membership at each’s convenience.
He said it would be up to the Pheu Thai to assign responsibilities for the former Thai Rak Thai executives. He said he believed the former executives would mainly help in the party’s works instead of working in the Cabinet.
Wan Muhamad Noor said he had not been assigned to be charge of party’s affairs in the deep South as reported yet. He said he would be willing to help the party any way he could.
