All 30 Future Forward Party (FWP) candidates for Bangkok on Monday took a public bus to register as MP candidates on the first day of registration for the upcoming general election.

Led by FWP leader Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, the bus took the candidates to the capital’s registration centre at the Thai-Japanese Stadium in Din Daeng.

“We all travel together by public bus in order to reduce pollution. If we go separately, we have to drive more than 30 personal cars,” the party posted on its Facebook page. 

“And we realise that the bus produces heat, fumes, fine particle PM2.5 and pollution, so the country badly and urgently needs to develop a public transportation system to make the system belong to everyone,” it said.

FWP will push for this policy if it wins the election and governs the country, it added in the post.
