    Outspoken politician Chuwit Kamolvisit has launched his own party, aided by a bull terrier.

    Mr Chuwit launched his Rak Prathet Thai (Love Thailand) Party at his home in Sukhumvit Soi 10 yesterday. His home will also serve as the party's headquarters.

    The massage parlour tycoon-turned-politician who has tried to portray himself as an anti-vice and corruption crusader said his party would work on the opposition benches to monitor the government.

    In the July 3 election, his party will field only 10 candidates on the party list.

    The party will kick off its campaign on Wednesday.

    In the 2005 general election, Mr Chuwit won a seat on the party list for the now-disbanded Chart Thai Party.

    Campaign posters depicted him holding a sledgehammer, a metaphor for his anti-vice platform.

    "This time I'll be behind a steering wheel, driving Thailand forward," Mr Chuwit told his audience.

    He will monitor the performance of Cabinet members who are acting on behalf of "nominee" politicians banned from politics, to check whether they really know how to run the country.

    Mr Chuwit said Love Thailand would avoid fielding candidates in constituencies, as it was too expensive.

    His candidates were not stars or personalities, but ordinary people aiming to tackle corruption, Mr Chuwit said.

    One of the candidates is a disabled woman, identified as Khun Lek.

    He said the candidate may have a crippled leg "but she does not have a crippled mind." During his party launch, he showed his pet dog, a bull terrier, saying the dog was a symbol of loyalty and honesty.

    "It also doesn't care whether anyone is handsome or not," Chuwit said.Mr Chuwit stood for Bangkok governor in the past two gubernatorial elections, without success.
