Charupong should shun Jakrapob and his movement

- +

It is clear that former Pheu Thai party leader Charupong Ruangsuwan has decided he will not come home and instead live in self-imposed exile, at least until there is a democratically elected government. 

Unlike his boss, fugitive former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who ran the Pheu Thai-led government of his younger sister Yingluck, and its earlier incarnations led by Samak Sundaravej and Somchai Wongsawat, via Skype and smartphones, former interior minister Charupong has chosen to lead an anti-coup movement, the Organisation of Free Thais for Human Rights and Democracy, or FT-HD, which was officially launched today.
