Pheu Thai Party is expected to win at least 300 MP seats even though each candidate has won fewer votes than in the past, a party source, who asked to be named, said.

The source added that Sompong Amornvivat, director of the party’s election centre, had said in a meeting that judging from an evaluation of the vote results, Pheu Thai should get about 240 constituency MP seats and about 60 party-list ones.

However, the vote results released so far show that more voters opted for "no vote", making many of the party’s winning candidates get just over 20,000 votes per constituency versus the more than 40,000 votes they have done previously.
