Welcome to the hustle and bustle of Thai politics, where the winds of change are stirring up a storm that even Mother Nature herself would envy. Our protagonist, the charismatic Jirayu Houngsub, has donned his political cape, ready to ascend as the prospective chair of an exhilarating new parliamentary escapade— a special committee with a mission that could rival the plot of a Hollywood blockbuster.

Picture this: a team of 25 dynamic individuals, a formidable mix of political savvy and fresh perspectives, including the ever-vibrant Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, the phoenix rising from the ashes of the now-legendary Future Forward Party. This ensemble is all abuzz with one electrifying goal: to take the reins of power from the mighty grip of the military and hand them over to the people’s champion, the Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA).

Jirayu, with a backstory as a former Pheu Thai Party MP, might just have the perfect blend of experience and zeal to lead this team. He’s not just talking the talk; he’s ready to walk the walk and plunge headlong into this noble quest. Zealous, passionate, and eagle-eyed – qualities that define Jirayu, our potential committee chair.

Let’s delve into the heart of the matter – the Sattahip Electricity Authority (SEA), the jewel in the crown of the Royal Thai Navy for a whopping eight decades. Serving the five tambons of the Sattahip district, this relic of a bygone era has stood the test of time. But oh, how the tide has turned! The district has metamorphosed from a sleepy hollow into a buzzing hub, peppered with high-end condos and hotels. Yet, amidst this development, the SEA is akin to an old VHS tape in a Netflix era – quaint, but hardly up to scratch.

“Residents are up in arms,” declares Jirayu with a tinge of drama, “Picture the scene: a storm brews, and with the first drops of rain, the lights flicker like a discotheque from the 80s – this is not the ‘flashdance’ they signed up for!”

But the SEA isn’t the only old tune on this record. Cast your mind back to the not-so-distant 1994 when Ban Chang district played the same track before switching over to the current chart-topper, the PEA. It’s a transition that screams of potential, a retuning of services to hit that high note for residents once more.

The silver screen of Thai politics could never be complete without a subplot. Among the high-stakes storyline to be unraveled at the committee’s inaugural Wednesday Wonders is the fate of military golf courses – will they make the cut?

Framing this narrative was none other than the MFP list MP Bencha Saengchantra. The plot thickens as she reveals the military’s business ventures – not just a source of power, but of wealth. A gripping tale of generals, golf courses, and gargantuan wealth declarations to the National Anti-Corruption Commission – the NACC’s next binge-worthy drama perhaps?

These ventures are not your average mom-and-pop shops. They sprawl over 7.5 million rai of state land, accommodating everything from racecourses to military housing projects. And then there’s the star of the show—the 205 radio and television frequencies, a broadcasting bonanza that rakes in a cool billion baht a year!

As if the plot couldn’t get any more intricate, the armed forces have diversified their monopoly, dipping their toes in energy businesses, including the ever-lucrative solar farms.

Wiroj Lakkhanaadisorn, another MFP stalwart, brings the international perspective with a statistic that could be the cliffhanger for our next episode – Thailand’s starring role in Band E of the Transparency International’s Government Defence Integrity Index. The suspense is palpable; will our heroes emerge victorious in bringing integrity back into vogue?

So, ladies and gentlemen, strap in and hold on to your hats – Thailand’s political rollercoaster is about to take off, and with Chairman Jirayu possibly at the helm, this is one ride you won’t want to miss!
