Phumtham sorts it for Pongsapat
To win over Bangkok voters, Pheu Thai has turned to a former communist - Political veteran Sanan had intended to step down as an MP, but was unexpectedly rushed to hospital - With the mud flying over the police stations that aren't, Suthep is ready to strike at his accusers
Phumtham Vejjayachai juggles multiple roles in the ruling Pheu Thai Party and is now the back-seat driver of the party's Bangkok governor campaign.
Phumtham: Orchestrating campaign
If the opinion polls _ putting Pheu Thai candidate Pongsapat Pongcharoen ahead of rival Democrat Party candidate MR Sukhumbhand Paribatra _ hold true, the credit may be due to Mr Phumtham, who is also the Pheu Thai secretary-general.
