The Democratic Party asked Chonburi-area residents for suggestions on how to “design and assemble Thailand” in a forum aimed at helping the minority party win again at the polls.
Central region party boss Alongkorn Pholbut hosted the April 26 meeting with local officials, business leaders and businesspeople at the Cape Dara Hotel.
Alongkorn said the Democrats have opened three offices in the eastern region and want to hear what citizens want from their government, what kind of administrative system they prefer and what the roles of public representatives should be.

The information collected will be used to create a political master plan for the Democrats, who were soundly defeated in the most recent national elections.
The party plans to announce its new platform at a rally on May 4 in Ayutthaya, a city no Democratic MP has been elected in 67 years.
On April 26, local party officials also planned to host a “blue sky night” at the Thai Oil Health Field in Chonburi when party leader and former Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva and other MPs were scheduled to speak on party plans.
