A new head for Pheau Thai? But who's the current head anyway?
We can't really blame you if you aren't too sure who is the "leader" of Pheau Thai Party.
What's General Chavalit Yongchaiyudh's position there? He is "chairman" of some sorts.
What about Chalerm Yoobamrung? He is said to be "Head of the MPs" or something along that line.
Yongyudh Vichaidit? Well, as far as we could ascertain, he is, at least officially, the party leader.
Now, a new name has popped up. Police Gen Kovit Watana, the former National Police chief.
The latest rumour is that Yongyudh may be stepping down from that post. And Police Gen Kovit may be assuming the post as party leader instead.
Who calls the shots at Pheau Thai then? Rumours say it's Thaksin Shinawatra. But then,he has never admitted that he actually "owns" the party.
As I was saying, I won't blame you if you aren't quite sure who's really running the country's biggest opposition party.
Most of the time, I don't know that either.
