The Thai Election Commission (EC) officially released the general election results for Phuket on Thursday (May 25th).

Now for the update:
The result shows that the Move Forward Party in Phuket had won 92,565 votes for party-list and three out of three constituency members of parliament seats.
Meanwhile, the United Thai Nation Party led by caretaker and former PM Prayut Chan-O-Cha had 71,192 votes for party-list.
In total 235,077 Phuket people went for the election vote from 313,209 Phuket people who have the right to vote which is 75.05 percent.
Although Thailand’s general election resulted in a heroic victory for the Move Forward Party, their bid to form a coalition government may not be plain sailing after certain members of the upper house (Senate) made it clear that they will not vote for the party’s prime ministerial candidate as the country’s 30th premier.
