Korn resigns as Chart Pattana Kla leader, indicating his retirement from politics 2023

On Sunday, veteran politician Korn Chatikavanij resigned as Chart Pattana Kla leader and signaled he was done with politics after his new party secured only two seats in the House of Representatives.

Korn said on Facebook that he will vacation with his family and support the party’s ideas as an average person.

He was certain his new party would gain enough House members to adopt innovative business ideas to revitalize the economy during the election.

He promised to cut gas costs by forcing oil refineries to lower their profits in the next government. He suggested that banks cease utilizing Credit Bureau records of loan failures when contemplating new loans to help small and medium-sized businesses.

The Chart Pattana Kla Party will have two lower House MPs, a constituency MP and a party-list MP.

Wannarat Charnukul became party-list MP. Prasat Tanprasert, who won Nakhon Sawan’s Constituency 6, is Chart Pattana Kla’s lone MP.

Korn ran exclusively as his party’s second prime minister.

Worse, the Chart Pattana Kla briefly considered joining the Move Forward-led alliance, but Pheu Thai supporters were upset that Korn had organized rallies against the government under previous premier Yingluck Shinawatra.

Korn stated he resigned to Chart Pattana Kla chairman Suwat Liptapanlop last week on Facebook.

“I met him to thank him for giving me trust and I informed him of my resignation as Chart Pattana Kla leader,” Korn wrote.

“As the ex-Chart Pattana Kla leader, I would like to thank the people for voting for our political policies. I’ll support all our policies as a citizen.”

“I felt very honoured to serve the people and the country I love as an elected politician,” Korn said.

Korn continued, “I would like to thank all of you for helping me carry out this mission since 2005.

Our nation has many unsolved issues. I support all politicians morally. He offered his moral support to first-time elected officials.

Korn said his family will take a long vacation.

Korn stated he owed his family several vacations.
