Former MP for Phitsanulok Warong Dechgitvigrom has resigned from the Action Coalition for Thailand (ACT) party to set up a political group of his own.

Dr Warong announced his resignation on his Facebook page on Wednesday morning.

 "I have talked to Suthep Thaugsuban about the problems in current politics, stressing the necessity to give people a good understanding of them, and I have the capability to do this,"  he said in his post.

"But, being a member of a political party may cause me some limitations in looking for participants.  I have decided to resign my membership of the ACT."

Mr Suthep is a co-founder of the ACT.

Dr Warong said he intended to invite people who have concerns for the country to set up a political group to provide knowledge to people, and offer ways out of problems .

He would also serve as a special lecturer for the Thai Move Institute.

TMI is an organisation set up by people to provide training for future leaders of the country.

Dr Warong is also a former member of the Democrat Party. He resigned last year and joined the ACT.
