Next-gen politicians offer hope
Thailand today is witnessing the rise of a new breed of younger political aspirants who look to shake up the old-fashioned establishment.
The announcement by Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, the executive of Thai Summit Group, one of Thailand's leading auto-parts makers, that he had formed a party called Anakhot Mai (Future Forward), taps into a global trend.
Most of the founding members of Anakhot Mai party are aged below 40, with 16 of the 26 aged under 30.
