Pheu Thai Party names Phuket candidate

Legacy Phuket Gazette



PHUKET: The Phuket branch of the Pheu Thai Party yesterday announced Saman Kebsap as their candidate to contest the Phuket 2 constituency in the upcoming national election, to be held on July 3.

Pheu Thai Party Southern region leader Pichet Sathirachawal declared Mr Saman’s candidacy for Phuket 2 at the opening of Mr Saman’s office, located opposite Thalang Hospital on Thepkrasattri Road.

Mr Saman, a Phuket native originally from Patong, runs a real estate business with offices in Patong and Rawai.

He also holds the position of deputy director at the Pheu Thai Andaman Operations Center, located in the Phuket City Home estate in Rassada.

Mr Saman will contest the Phuket 2 constituency against Democrat candidate Raewat Areerob and Jirayus Songyos of the Bhum Jai Thai Party.

The Phuket 2 constituency covers more than half of the island and includes Thalang District, Kathu District and the Koh Kaew and Rassada subdistricts of Muang District.
