Admirers hope Piyabutr is not “too fast to live” kind

Piyabutr Saengkanokkul, secretary-general of the Future Forward Party, is travelling at the speed of light politically. A virtual nobody last year, he has come under a major media spotlight along with his party’s leader, Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, following Future Forward’s stellar performance in the March 24 general election amid a massive “new generation” fever.

 

Despite attacks from critics and the conservatives, the party under the young men’s leadership managed to come third in terms of MP seats won after the two rival parties contesting to form a next coalition government — Pheu Thai and Palang Pracharat.

 

Both Piyabutr and Thanathorn are facing legal problems stemming from their political activities. Piyabutr is charged with contempt of court and committing a computer crime after he criticised the Constitutional Court’s decision to dissolve the Thai Raksa Chart Party in March. Thanathorn is charged with sedition for his alleged involvement in a 2015 anti-coup demonstration. Both of them have denied the charges, insisting that they have only good intentions for the country.
