33 10 83

IN a strategy to win more seats, relatives and allies of deposed Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and her brother, Thaksin, have formed a new political party ahead of the general election expected to be held early next year.

Yingluck and Thaksin’s nephew and niece are among the members of the new Thai Raksa Chart Party, which also comprised close aides and the younger generation of the influential clan’s political loyalists.

An ex-member of parliament from the Shinawatra clan’s Puea Thai Party, Peechapol Pongpanich, will be heading the new offshoot.
