Imagine a scene gleaming with political camaraderie, high spirits, and a spread of local and international culinary delights, all nestled within the lush confines of the Green Valley project at Somchai’s residence. The event, which commenced at the stroke of 5.30 pm, unfolded into a splendid evening that saw the crème de la crème of Thai politics gathering to welcome not one, but three prime ministerial personalities, amid the convivial chuckles and warm handshakes of friends and allies.

As the sun began its descent, the atmosphere buzzed with the arrival of esteemed members from the ruling Pheu Thai Party. Notable figures graced the venue, including Puangpetch Chunla-ead from the PM’s Office, the ever-insightful Kriang Kantinan, Deputy Interior Minister, alongside Jakkapong Sangmanee, Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister, Deputy Agriculture Minister Chaiya Phromma, and the eloquent party-list MP, Sompong Amornvivat. The evening’s roster was further embellished by the presence of Agriculture Minister Thammanat Prompow and the distinguished Kamphaeng Phet MP Pai Leeke from the Palang Pracharat Party.

The air filled with anticipation as Thaksin Shinawatra, the man of the hour, made his grand entrance at around 6pm, closely followed by Srettha. The spotlight, however, was not just on their timely arrival but also on the PM’s choice of attire—a shirt exquisitely woven from Pha Khao Ma fabric, a piece he proudly acquired from the Bang Sai Royal Folk Arts and Crafts Centre in Ayutthaya province. His arrival was marked by heartfelt greetings exchanged with Somchai, the night’s gracious host, and his sister Yaowapha, Thaksin’s sister and a woman of grace and welcoming smiles.

As the evening wore on, illustrious guests, including Pheu Thai executives and members of the revered Shinawatra family, gathered around a long dinner table lavishly set with an array of mouth-watering dishes. The feast was a celebration of flavors, featuring a blend of local northern cuisines and international favorites such as savory noodles, succulent meatballs, crispy fried rice, the classic pad Thai, delectable Satay, rich Japanese curry, tangy beef taco, and the ever-popular roti. Every dish was a testament to Thailand’s rich culinary heritage and a nod to global tastes.

Thaksin’s visit to the northern city has been a topic of much speculation, deemed by some as a strategic move to consolidate his political influence. This comes in the wake of his pilgrimage that reportedly began on Thursday, a journey Thaksin describes as a heartfelt tribute to his ancestors, undeterred by critics who view it otherwise. Despite the controversies that have marked his political journey, including a sentence in absentia for corruption during his prime ministerial tenure from 2001-2006, Thaksin’s spirit remains unshaken. His conviction, later met with a royal pardon, and subsequent parole after a reduced sentence highlight the tumultuous, yet intriguing political saga of a figure who continues to shape Thailand’s political landscape.

Somchai’s brief stint as Thailand’s 26th prime minister further adds layers to this intricate political narrative, his tenure cut short by a ruling from the Constitutional Court, leading to a ban from politics and the dissolution of People’s Power Party—a legacy of Thaksin’s Thai Rak Thai Party—only to be succeeded by the Pheu Thai Party. The continual political evolution, marked by resilience and unwavering ambition, serves as a testament to the enduring legacy of these political stalwarts, forever etching their mark on Thailand’s rich political tapestry.
