Somchai unveils Puea Thai’s slogan – Bangkok Post, April 12, 2011
“Thaksin thinks, Puea Thai acts” is the selling point in the opposition Puea Thai Party’s election campaign, former prime minister Somchai Wongsawat said on Tuesday.
After taking part in a water-pouring ceremony with more than 80 red-shirt supporters in Chiang Mai’s Muang district, Mr Somchai, who is fugitive former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra’s brother-in-law, said the new slogan would work because Thaksin had been successful in the past.
Mr Somchai said he was no longer a Puea Thai executive member, but he continued to support the party.
”All political parties are readying for the coming elections but I believe most people will choose Puea Thai because they believe Puea Thai will save the country from crisis,” he said.
Puea Thai will kick off its election campaign on April 23 at Thammasat University, he said.
“In the future, famers will have credit cards and their debts will be suspended while high-speed trains will run across the country,” he added.
