Jarupong confident Pheu Thai will win next general election


BANGKOK, 10 December 2013 Pheu Thai leader Jarupong Ruangsuwan is confident that his party will win the next general election, while affirming that the government has to act as a caretaker. 

Acting Interior Minister Jarupong Ruangsuwan, the leader of the ruling Pheu Thai Party, expressed his confidence that Pheu Thai would once again prevail over the Opposition Democrat Party in the forthcoming election, scheduled for February 2, 2014.

The party will on December 11 summon a meeting to discuss the party’s strategies for the upcoming general election, while trying to find the best possible solution to the ongoing crisis-one that does not affect the country’s image and competitiveness.

Lastly, Mr. Jarupong asserted that the government had to, under the Section 181 of the Constitution, remain in a caretaker capacity lest it violate the constitution.
