The Pheu Thai Party held an enthusiastic rally in Nakhon Si Thammarat, featuring prominent members such as Paetongtarn Shinawatra, candidate for prime minister, and her husband Pik Sukhsawat, as well as party strategist Chaturon Chaisang and director Natthawut Saikua. The candidates for MP seats in their respective districts also echoed the party’s policies and called for local support.

During the rally, Pataorn Thansinchai addressed the crowds via video call. She spoke of her deep concern for the struggles faced by the local agricultural communities, such as falling rubber and palm oil prices. The Pheu Thai Party’s vision is to improve agricultural income by exploring new markets, fostering trade deals, and investing in digital wallets for all Thai citizens aged 16 and over. These measures, she believes, will stimulate the economy and provide much-needed income for voters in this region.

The party’s agricultural policies, supported by Settha Thaweesin, focus on using innovative marketing and technology to increase income, particularly for rubber farmers. By promoting the transformation of raw materials into finished products and increasing demand, the party aims to raise the price of natural rubber, generating higher returns for those involved in the sector.

Natthawut Saikua, the director of the Pheu Thai Party, emphasised the importance of change; understanding global shifts and developing solutions for revenue generation and economic stimulation are crucial in modern politics. Consequently, he is offering his candidature, asking for the opportunity to share the love and support of the people of Nakhon Si Thammarat on May 14.

Despite Nakhon Si Thammarat being Natthawut Saikua’s birthplace, the Pheu Thai Party has never had an MP representation from this province. As such, he has requested that the local citizens give the party a chance to serve them by voting for their candidates in this upcoming election. In doing so, the party pledges to deliver on their policy promises, encapsulated by the saying “earning ten thousand while sleeping and a hundred thousand upon waking.”

On May 14, the Pheu Thai Party is asking for the support of Nakhon Si Thammarat’s constituents in the elections, by choosing their candidates for both their MP districts and Party number 29. With this opportunity, the Pheu Thai Party hopes to govern and serve the people for the first time in this region.

The rally, attended by numerous supporters, strengthened the party’s bond with the local community and fuelled momentum as they move forward to the election day, poised to effect meaningful change for the betterment of the people of Nakhon Si Thammarat, reports Sanook.
