Thailand’s Pita resigns as Move Forward leader

  • Pita Limjaroenrat has resigned as leader of Thailand’s Move Forward Party, paving the way for other members of the party to lead the biggest opposition group in the country’s parliament.
  • “The current constitution specifies that the opposition leader must be [a member of parliament],” Pita said in his Facebook post on Friday. “However, I am still suspended as [member of parliament] by the court order. Then, I cannot work in the parliament as the opposition leader in the near future.”
  • He did not mention who will replace him as party leader.
