Transgender’s candidature a new first for provincial poll – Mayuree Sukyingcharoenwong – The Nation

A beautiful transgender has caused a stir by registering as an election candidate for the Nan Provincial Administration Organisation.

“I’m confident that my experience and ability will be useful in the development of Nan,” Yonlada “Kirkkong” Suanyos, 30, said yesterday.

This is the first time a transgender has run for a political post at the provincial level. Although she is a new face in politics, she is famous as president of the Trans Female Association of Thailand.
