Somsak bids farewell to Chart Thai Pattana party
After 32 years of ups and downs in politics, former deputy leader of Chart Thai Pattana party Somsak Prissanananthakul has turned his back on politics by quitting the party which he described as “the home that has everything, that is life, soul and breath”.
A veteran politician of Suphan Buri and the right-hand man of Banharn Silpa-archa, the late founder and leader of Chart Thai party which was dissolved and resurrected under the name of Chart Thai Pattana, Somsak on Tuesday posted a farewell message in his Facebook page.
His post reads as follows:
“Farewell…..because love (I) have to bid goodbye
Never thought before in my life there would be today
The home that gives everything
The home which is life, soul and breath
Knowing the home would have problem because of me
We must choose to protect the home
To sacrifice limbs to save life
32 years with the home that is warm…farewell
Somsak is currently under a five-year ban from politics by the Supreme Court’s Criminal Division for Holders of Political Offices for declaring false statement about his 16-million baht house while serving as education minister.
