Thailand’s main opposition Pheu Thai party claims the alliance has won enough seats to try and form a government. The announcement comes amid a delay in unofficial results and allegations of voting irregularities.

Thailand’s Pheu Thai party, which was ousted in a military coup in 2014, claimed on Wednesday to have secured a majority in the lower house of parliament after banding together with six other Thai political parties.

Palang Pracharath party has also claimed the right to form a government, with a full preliminary vote count yet to be announced in Thailand’s first general election since the coup.
