  • Motherland Party was a Thai political party active from 2007 to 2011. It was founded on September 11, 2007, by more than 200 politicians including defectors from the Thai Rak Thai Party. The Pheu Pandin Party presented itself as a compromise party, a neutral and moderate alternative to the two main rivals, Democrat and People's Power Party. It included both former allies and opponents of deposed prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra and his outlawed Thai Rak Thai Party. Its most notable members included Thaksin's former foreign minister Surakiart Sathirathai, Suranand Vejjajiva and Preecha Laohaphongchana. Suwit Khunkitti and Watchara Punnachet have been elected party leader and party secretary general respectively. The party appointed Vatana Asavahame as the party chairman, and Police General Pracha Promnok as party chief adviser. General Panlop Pinmanee, adviser to the Internal Security Command Operation, accepted to become adviser to the party, overseeing security. In the 2007 election, the party secured 24 seats and became a junior partner in the government coalition led by Samak Sundaravej and his PPP.
