Phuket Candidates for Move Forward to Push for Phuket Governor Election

Phuket –

Phuket candidates for the Move Forward Party will begin the first objective in their policy, they want to have an election for the Phuket Governor instead of the normal selection from the government.

The Move Forward party leader Pita Limjaroenrat, 42, on Monday (May 15th) declared a victory after the unofficial Thai general election vote count released by the Election Commission (EC).

The Move Forward Party have taken all three seats in three constituencies in Phuket in Thailand’s national Election.

The Candidate for Phuket Constituency 2 Mr. Chalermpong Sangdee told the Phuket Express. “The first thing we will do for the change is to have an election for Phuket Governor instead of the normal selection from the government. We want to push Phuket into forward development with peace and harmony. Phuket is a paradise island which is the Pearl of the Andaman.”

The Candidate for Phuket Constituency 3 Mr. Thitikan Thitipruektikun talked to the Phuket Express about the controversial cannabis issue, which was a major point in recent elections. “According to the leader of the Move Forward Party, Pita Limjaroenrat, we want cannabis to return to being an illegal narcotic drug first. This is to prevent importing/smuggling from foreign sellers and other issues, essentially allowing us to start from scratch with marijuana and implement logical policies slowly. After that we will relieve little by little which will mainly focus on medical purposes. Recreational use will have to wait. This will be relieved when it can be better controlled.”

The Phuket Express notes, however, that in regards to cannabis anything is possible and many business owners have unsurprisingly criticized any plans to recriminalize the plant.
