Pita says will withdraw from Thai PM race if he loses next vote

BANGKOK: The liberal frontrunner to become Thailand’s next prime minister said Saturday he would withdraw his candidacy if parliament did not endorse him next week, after military-appointed lawmakers foiled his first attempt.
“If it’s clear that Move Forward Party truly doesn’t have a chance to form the government, I’m ready to give a chance to Thailand by letting the party that has the second most votes… be the one to form the coalition,” Pita Limjaroenrat said in a video address posted to social media.
