Democrats hope to get 15 MPs in NE

The Democrat Party hopes to clinch up to 15 seats in the House of Representatives from the Northeast Region, known to be a traditional stronghold of its rival Pheu Thai Party, Vithoon Nambutr said on Sunday.

Mr Vithoon, a Democrat party list candidate in change of the party's election campaign in the Lower Northeast, said the party was certain of winning in both constituencies of Amnat Charoen province, Constituencies 1 and 2 of Yasothon, and Constituencies 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, and 11 of Ubon Ratchathani.

Throughout the Northeast, the party hoped to  win up to 15 House seats in the July 3 election, he said.

He said Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva's campaign tour to the Lower Northeast on Saturday was expected to boost the party's popularity throughout the country, not only the Northeast.
