Two brothers hoping to win seats in parliament in July’s election campaigned in Naklua late last month.
Panawatchanan and Jakkrit Kraimat stumped in Chonburi Zone 6 May 26, promoting the record and platform of their Democrat Party. Panawatchanan is running as a general party-slate candidate while the younger Jakkrit would represent the district if elected.
Brothers Panawatchanan and Jakkrit Kraimat are out on the campaign trail in Naklua.
The candidates ticked off the Democrats’ election pledges of a 25 percent increase in the minimum wage, enhanced drug suppression, low-interest education loans and farmer supports. Their message of “politics for the people” was met with enthusiasm by supporters.
Jakkrit touted the record of party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva, saying the prime minister and Democrats have worked for the people over the past two years with programs offering free primary education, stipends for the elderly and farm guarantees.
