Thailand’s opposition Move Forward and Pheu Thai parties won the most seats in Sunday’s election, paving the way for a challenge to a military status quo after nearly a decade of government led or backed by the army.
Parliamentary seats are distributed based on 400 open constituency seats and 100 ‘party-list’ seats – or seats won by parties based on their share of national votes.
