Hello, Phuket Express Readers and Supporters!
The following is our weekly feature in which we highlight the top local stories in our area of Phuket from the past week. The number of stories differ from week to week.
These are chosen and curated by our editorial team and are designed for our readers to get a quick “catch-up” of important stories they may have missed. We publish many stories daily and it is easy to lose track of important events or changes in our area. We do national recaps in a separate article, this is only the top local stories in Phuket province.
They are in no particular order of importance but roughly in order of publishing. These are from Monday, May 15th, 2023, to Sunday, May 21st, 2023.
Let’s get started and see what the top local stories were!
- The Move Forward Party have taken all three seats in three constituencies in Phuket in Thailand’s national Election.
It will, however, be a long road to any sort of central policy change on electing versus nominating governors.
This incident captured major attention on our social media and general discussion around boat safety in Thailand.
CCTV footage nearby shows the pickup truck driver lost control of their vehicle before crashing into the electric authority staffer, wooden ladders, and a power pole.
The fire did not spread to nearby houses and buildings but the house was destroyed. One unidentified person was injured from smoke inhalation.
That’s all for this week, as always thanks for your support!
