PPP leader Samak Sundaravej has decided to end his bid to become prime minister after witnessing the parliament session on Friday which saw many MPs disagreed with his nomination to be prime minister.
Somsak Kietsuranont, PPP executive member, said that now it is understood that Samak who is disqualified for violating charter earlier this week, has decided not to accept his party’s nomination for him to be prime minister again.
“It is understood that Khun Samak will no longer want to be reinstate as prime minister again after the Parliamentary session on Friday morning,” Somsak said.
Meanwhile a well-informed source in the PPP said that Samak is highly likely that Samak will resign from the party in the near future.
House speaker Chai Chidchob postponed the meeting on Friday morning after failing to meet the quorum of the House seats.
Most of the coalition parties as well as part of his own PPP boycotted the session, citing Samak should not be reinstated as the premiership again.
