Thailand will hold its general election on May 14. This is the country’s second general election since the 2014 coup d'état. The incumbent Prayuth Chan-Ocha is seeking to retain his position as the prime minister while Paetongtarn Shinawatra, daughter of former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, is staging some sort of a political comeback for her family. A rising star in the political scene and a hot favourite amongst the candidates, Pita Limjaroenrat urges for change in this election.
Will the upcoming election see a political shift in Thailand? Is it going to be a watershed election fuelled by the desire for change? Lianhe Zaobao’s Associate Editor Han Yong Hong and Associate Foreign Editor Ng Hon Kuan share their perspectives in this episode of Global Heartbeat.
