Military opposition parties won a significant victory in the general election and promised major reforms.

Thailand’s opposition received widespread support in the country’s general elections and the leader of the Move Forward Party is expected to be the next prime minister.

Pita Limjaroenrat and his coalition must overcome the Senate appointed by the military, especially since this bloc also gets a say in who becomes prime minister and who is a government.

But, with the army so powerful, can the reforms promised by the opposition be achieved?
