Pattaya —

The MP-elect for Constituency District 9 from the Move Forward Party Yodchai Puengporn personally thanked voters in Pattaya for their overwhelming support and vowed to rectify laws that had adverse effects on businesses.

Mr. Yodchai went to greet Pattaya residents around the city yesterday, May 15th, after the Election Commission (EC) announced Monday that the Move Forward Party (MFP) had won 152 seats in the lower house (House of Representatives) in Sunday’s general election.

Mr. Yodchai, an MFP MP candidate for Constituency District 9 (Nongprue sub-district), gracefully won by a landslide in Pattaya, receiving over 30,459 votes and beating the second place from the Pheu Thai Party by a large margin.

The MP-elect revealed to local media that he was delighted to be trusted by the people and to get to work as a representative of the people of Pattaya and Nongprue sub-district.

The MFP would expedite its policy implementation as quickly as possible, which roughly included the “24-Hour Pattaya” campaign and the election of provincial governors in all provinces.

The Pattaya News notes that the appointment of provincial governors is usually made by central government, with some provinces having governors appointed directly by the Ministry of Interior. However, there are certain provinces, known as “Special Administrative Provinces,” where the governor or mayor is elected, such as Bangkok and Pattaya.

Mr. Yodchai said his party would also have the ability to promptly address various laws that may hinder businesses through the City Council.
