Poramese “Beer” Ngampichese has officially been certified as the new Pattaya Mayor by the Election Commission and vows to fulfill his four major campaign promises.
The Election Commission eventually verified the Pattaya mayor election yesterday, June 13th, saying that the election has been honest and fair in accordance with Section 17 of the Provincial Administrative Election Act of 2019. The No.1 candidate from the Rao Rak Pattaya team Poramese Ngampichese who obtained the most votes is, therefore, certified as the Pattaya Mayor, effective yesterday June 13th.
Meanwhile Poramese after knowing this announcement told the Pattaya press that he would immediately start working on his four campaign promises: Fixing the tourism-reliant economy, uplifting overall living conditions including roadworks being finished, solving flooding problems, and improving education for youth in Pattaya.
“The most urgent problem now is, of course, the slow economy and serious damage to tourism, which is Pattaya’s bread and butter. Restoring all business sectors, including nightlife and entertainment fully, is critical. I have planned many events that will bring more tourists to the city, and we just announced the return of the Pattaya Marathon yesterday. We plan to return to events, like the music festival and fireworks, nearly every single weekend to drive domestic tourism especially,” Poramese told The Pattaya News. “I will also urge the contractors of the unfinished roadworks around the city to speed up and reveal their anticipated deadlines for the finished projects to the public.”
Regarding the vendor’s illegal occupation of the Na Jomtien extended beach, the new mayor said that he would address this issue personally with the vendors and would review the rule that could allow them to run their business peacefully with other people at the beach.
“I understand the vendors’ situation, but we need to keep the beach beautiful and organized as well. I believe we can reach a middle ground to allow vendors while ensuring the area is also open for traffic and those not interested in products and only who want to enjoy the beach.” Poramese said.
Lastly, the new mayor promised to improve education by arranging regular recreational activities for students from 11 schools in Pattaya.
Poramese reportedly commented on the second place candidate Sinchai Wattanasartsathorn’s complaint against him that he was unconcerned about it and that he could clarify any doubt.
