Dr Silp – Silpwichai Noisyamitr, a candidate for the constituency 24 of Khlong San, Thonburi, and Ratchaburana, Bang Pakok, under the Pheu Thai Party, aims to revive the economy with the diverse local culture. Growing up, he was a keen reader of Bangkok’s column in the newspaper, which made him an “active citizen” with a great knowledge of urban development. His involvement with politics started when he worked as a PR team member for the Pheu Thai Party, learning the party’s policies and understanding the importance of working for the people.

One of Silp’s dreams is to represent his hometown in the capacity of a Member of Parliament, having spent more than 49 years of his life there. From being a barber shop owner’s son who loved reading newspapers and listening to political debates to working for the Pheu Thai Party for over ten years, Dr Silp is now taking a step into his familiar territory as a candidate.

Stemming from his love for politics, Silp was unsure of how to enter this world until he got the chance to work as the PR for the Thaksin Government, focusing on projects such as the 30-Baht universal healthcare and asset-to-equity conversion programs. This gave him an understanding of how the government can create direct benefits for the citizens through proper policy execution.

Having worked behind the scenes for 10 years, Dr Silp had to study the policies in-depth and understand their true implications. By joining the Pheu Thai Party, he wanted to work for his constituency, given his strong attachment to the area. He believes that the cultural diversity in his area is an opportunity to create economic growth and benefit the local people.

One of Silp’s concerns is the controversial issue of electoral boundary demarcations. He believes this has negatively affected the public, as they may not benefit from their local representatives’ development efforts due to the arbitrary divisions.

His desire to work for his community has led him to prioritize job creation and income generation, seeking innovative ways to promote tourism and the diverse culture of his area. He hopes to act as a mediator between the Pheu Thai Party’s policies and the public to comprehensively address their concerns and help solve their problems.

Dr Silp is confident that should the Pheu Thai Party win enough votes, they have the capacity to execute all policies promised to the public, as he works to deliver on his commitments to his constituents reports Sanook.
