BANGKOK, May 15 (Reuters) – The leader of Thailand’s Move Forward opposition party said on Monday that he had invited five other opposition parties, including Pheu Thai, to form an alliance and that he was ready to become prime minister.

He also warned of a high price to pay if meddling in the election results led to the formation of a minority government. Move Forward came in first in Sunday’s election, with army-backed and established parties defeated by the opposition. (Reporting by Panu Wongcha-um; editing by Kanupriya Kapoor, Martin Petty)
