Pro-Prayut party takes lead in Thailand’s election

The Thai party which has named Prayut Chan-o-cha as the prime minister candidate is leading the general election on Sunday. Palang Pracharath (power of people’s state) Party reportedly has won more than 7.5 million votes, followed by Pheu Thai (for Thais) Party which has gained over 7 million votes, according to unofficial results of votes counted on late Sunday night by the Election Commission. Coming third was Future Forward Party with some 5.2 million votes. The official results will be published until May 9. The Democrat Party, the country’s oldest, has been hit by the heaviest blow of defeat, which prompted party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva to resign hours after the voting ended at 17:00 on Sunday. The Democrats have won only about 3.1 million votes. Thailand held its first general election since the 2014 coup on Sunday, with more than 10,000 candidates from about 80 parties competing for the 500 lower house seats.
