Bangkok red-shirts back Sudarat

About 30 red-shirt supporters gathered at the Pheu Thai headquarters on Tuesday, calling on the senior government party to name Khunying Sudarat Keyuraphan the party's candidate in the February election for the next Bangkok governor, reports said.

The red-shirts submitted their letter of support for Khunying Sudarat to the prime minister and party leader Charupong Ruangsuwan for consideration.

They said they were confident that Khunying Sudarat would win the governorship as she was a successful administrator with years of political experience.

They believed Khunying Sudarat would beat the Democrat Party’s candidate, which is likely to be Sukhumbhand Paribatra.

The red-shirts did not support the party’s reported plan to back Pol Gen Pongsapat Pongcharoen, a deputy national police chief, to run for the Bangkok governorship.

They promised that if the Pheu Thai Party picks Khunying Sudarat as its candidate, the red-shirt supporters of the United front for Democracy against Dictatorship would help launch her campaign and would definitely vote for her.
