A total of five candidates were running, hopefully correctly transcribed:
- Chonsawat Asavahame (ชนม์สวัสดิ์ อัศวเหม), son of former deputy interior minister Watthana Asavahame. Don't know how he is related with the former PAO chairman Somphon. Chonsawat was mayor of Samut Prakan city twice.
- Amnuai Rassamithat (อำนวย รัศมิทัต), according to the news article I used for this list he was PAO chairman before, but must have been before 2006. The PAO website sadly has no list of their former chairmen.
- Tanaphon Kharomprat (ธนภณ คารมปราชย์) of the New Politics Party.
- Phattarawat Apidennaphasay (ภัทรวดี อภิเด่นนภาลัย), affiliated with the UDD (red shirts). The only female candidate.
- Thonphat Thanthonpat (ธนภัท ธัญธนพัต), a local candidate
