Thailand's new Government
Thailand's new Government as of September 1st, 2023
On May 14th 2023, Thailand elected a new government and produced an unexpected surprise. Not the favoured Pheu Thai Party and certainly not the ex-militants sent into the race by the military junta received the most votes, but the progressive Move Forward Party (MFP) led by 42-year-old Pita Limjaroenrat.

The formation of the new government took a full three months because the senators appointed by the military junta steadfastly refused to accept the winner of the election.. As the composition of the new Thai government shows, it consists exclusively of the losers of the elections and therefore does not reflect the will of the voters, but the will of the establishment, the will of the so-called "Bangkok Elite".
