The young billionaire leading Thailand's Future Forward opposition(Updated: )
Thailand's elections will take place on March 24, 2019, with opposition parties hoping to bring democracy back into Thai politics. One of them is the Future Forward Party, or Anakhort Thai, led by Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, the executive vice president of Thai Summit Group. He uses social media tools like Twitter to reach out to young and first-time voters. But with the dissolution of pro-Thaksin Thai Raksa Chart Party, there are questions as to whether a similar fate could befall Future Forward and its leader, who faces criminal charges for criticising the military regime.
