Sam Mitr faction moves to oust Phalang Pracharat chief
An influential faction in the Phalang Pracharat Party dubbed Sam Mitr, or Three Allies, on Monday resolved to drive out the party’s secretary-general Sontirat Sontijirawong and demanded he not take up any political positions.
The group accused the secretary-general of mistakes in management and poor leadership skills that had caused internal conflict and crisis within the party.
A motion to expel Sonrirat will be put to the party meeting on Tuesday by MP Sira Jenjaka, a member of Sam Mitr.
The move comes after Sam Mitr failed to get its hands on key ministries in the Cabinet portfolio.
