Thailand’s opposition parties have formed a new coalition, called the “Move Forward” alliance, to challenge the military establishment. The alliance is made up of the Pheu Thai Party, the Future Forward Party, and the Action Coalition for Thailand.
The three parties are united in their desire to promote democratic reform and tackle the country’s entrenched political problems. The new coalition will seek to challenge the military-backed government of Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, who took power in a 2014 coup. The coalition is calling for an end to military interference in politics and for the government to respect the rule of law.
It is also calling for a new constitution and greater respect for human rights. The alliance is also demanding an investigation into the alleged corruption of the military establishment, which it claims has been exploiting the country’s resources for its own gain. The formation of the coalition is seen as a major step towards ushering in a new era of democracy in Thailand.
