Representatives of parties in the coalition led by Pheu Thai at a press conference in Bangkok this morning.

Thailand’s largest opposition party Pheu Thai, founded by former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, this morning held a press conference in Bangkok, announcing the formation of a coalition with the Future Forward parties, Pheu Chart party, Prachachart party,

Pheu Thai said the representative of the 7th party, the New Economic Party, could not come to the press conference but had pledged to join the coalition.

Pheu Thai leader and prime ministerial candidate Sudarat Keyuraphan said they are also negotiating with other parties.

Former police chief Seripisut Temiyavet, leader of the Seri Ruam Thai party, publicly asked Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha to resign.

On March 24, Thailand held its first general election after the 2013 coup. Official election results will be announced on May 9, but with this gathering, the coalition led by Pheu Thai

Palang Pracharath Party, the pro-military party that nominated Prime Minister Prayut, won 7.6 million popular votes, accounting for the largest proportion of 94% of votes counted, and 400,000 more votes than Pheu Thai.

Thailand is led by a military junta after the army overthrew Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, Thaksin’s sister.

This constitution also stipulates that 250 seats in the Senate are appointed by the military, creating an advantage for Mr. Prayut to maintain power.

If Mr. Prayut is elected and Pheu Thai maintains its coalition after the official election results are announced, Thailand will have a precarious minority government.

Experts predict that after many days or even weeks of messy arrangements, both Pheu Thai and Phalang Pracharat parties will declare victory and assert their right to form a government.

The Thai Election Commission initially planned to announce preliminary vote counting results on the evening of March 24, but after many delays, the commission has now announced the results of 350 seats in the House of Representatives, of which Pheu Thai has won.

Pheu Thai was founded in 2008. In May 2011, Pheu Thai nominated Ms. Yingluck as its candidate for prime minister.
