Buranupakorn dynasty imperilled as Pheu Thai and Move Forward battle for control

Recommended Posts



Two-time MP Tassanee Buranupakorn’s bid to run for chief executive of Chiang Mai’s Provincial Administrative Organization (PAO) under the reformist Move Forward Party has failed, threatening her family’s political grip on the province.


Instead, the main opposition party has opted for fellow Chiang Mai native Pun-Arj Chairatana, former chief of the National Innovation Agency (NIA), to helm its challenge in the northern province.


A selection committee member explained that Move Forward executives favored political novice Pun-Arj over Tassanee’s dynastic influence because the party wanted to develop the city and its people rather than gain more political power.
