It was a big turnout for members of People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD)at Thammasat University's Rangsit campus today to officially vote for the formation of a political party "as a tool to promote New Politics."
The vote wasn't a surprise. What lies ahead is how the five core leaders will run both the original PAD as a pressure group and also a political party.
The challenge is huge and daunting. But the mood today was one of enthusiasm and hope. The real work has yet to begin.
