Concerns have been raised over Thailand’s Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) project by the Thai Sang Thai (TST) Party, suggesting that it only benefits a select number of large companies, leaving small local businesses at a disadvantage. The EEC is designed to focus on 12 S-curve industries, such as new-generation car production and smart electronics, aiming at transforming it into a high-tech industrial hub. TST prime ministerial candidate, Supan Mongkolsutee, argues that very few small businesses have the ability to meet the EEC’s criteria and become part of the corridor, and calls for increased government support to give small and medium-sized enterprises a competitive edge in the area.

In response to the lack of support for some communities within the bureaucratic system, the Palang Pracharath Party (PPRP) has pledged to resolve the issue. During a campaign session in Ban Sap Hin Kaew, PPRP’s candidate Wirat Warich-alangkarn encountered citizens who complained about the absence of electricity in their community, an issue that has persisted for over 70 years due to improper coordination between related agencies in submitting requests to the military.

Meanwhile, a group of candidates from the United Thai Nation (UTN) Party have stated that the party’s support for them is lacking. Speaking on behalf of UTN candidates from various constituencies, Preecha Rengsomboonsap says that the party should provide better financial assistance to candidates within the limits of the law. However, UTN coordinator Himalai Phewpan counters that the party has limited funds to spend on the election and that candidates should manage their affairs to avoid creating additional burdens.

The Bhumjaithai Party cautions Pheu Thai against making hasty comments about post-election developments, such as potential cabinet posts, before the official poll results are announced. Bhumjaithai leader Anutin Charnvirakul’s remarks came as a response to Pheu Thai prime ministerial candidate Srettha Thavisin’s claim that Pheu Thai would take charge of the Transport Ministry in a new coalition government. Additionally, Bhumjaithai is seeking a Criminal Court injunction against former massage parlor magnate Chuvit Kamolvisit for his criticism of the party’s cannabis decriminalization campaign policy, arguing that his attacks may harm the party’s popularity.
