A large number of supporters of the Move Forward party gathered in front of the Central World shopping mall at the Ratchaprasong intersection today (Sunday), to offer moral support to party leader Pita Limjaroenrat. Many wore orange, the party’s colour.

Rain at about 4pm forced people to take shelter on the sky walk, while others used their umbrellas as they waited for Pita and the party’s Bangkok MPS, who are scheduled to meet their supporters at Ratchaprasong to thank them for their overwhelming support in the May 14th general election.

The party took all but one of the 34 parliamentary seats for Bangkok. The other seat went to the Pheu Thai candidate.

Several Move Forward MPs have already arrived at the scene. Among them are Wiroj Lakkhanaadisorn and Karoonpon Tiensuwan, as well as Pannika Wanich of the Progressive Movement.

Pita was in Suphan Buri this morning, to meet with party supporters as part of his nation-wide tour to thank them for the party’s significant victory in the election. He is expected to be back to Bangkok this evening to meet the supporters at Ratchaprasong.
