Pattana Kathu Party wins landslide victory | Thaiger

KATHU: The Pattana Kathu Party has won a landslide victory in the Kathu Municipal Council elections that took place on Saturday, winning 11 of the council’s 12 seats. Two thirds of the municipality’s 9,732 registered voters cast ballots. Each was able to vote for as many as 12 candidates. Prasert Kaokijpaisarn, the leader of Pattana Kathu, gathered the highest number of votes, (3,640), making him the most likely candidate for mayor of the municipality. He was followed by Sakchai Ruangpongkanjana with 3,512 votes. Third was K. Prasert’s brother Prasit, with 3,342 votes. Only one candidate from the opposing Kathu Ruamjai Party, party leader Suthep Sanguanpanont, won a seat, squeaking in with the 12th-largest number of votes. Suthep was Mayor of Kathu until the council was dissolved at the end of April to prepare for the election.
