The Chartthaipattana Party[3] (Thai: พรรคชาติไทยพัฒนา Phak Chat Thai Patthana, CP, English: Thai Nation Development Party) was founded on April 18, 2008, in anticipation of the December 2, 2008, Constitutional Court of Thailand ruling which dissolved the Chart Thai Party and banned its executive members from participating in politics for 5 years beginning at that date. Numerous former members of the Chart Thai Party joined the Chart Thai Patthana Party. Therefore, the Chart Thai Pattana party is the de facto successor party to the Chart Thai Party. The party's current leader is Chumpol Silpa-archa, the younger brother of former Prime Minister Banharn Silpa-archa, who has been banned from politics by the Constitutional Court.[4][5] On December 15, 2008, the party joined the Democrat Party, in forming a six-party coalition government under Abhisit Vejjajiva. In Abhisit's cabinet, the CP supplied the Deputy Prime Minister (Sanan Kachornprasart), the ministers of Tourism and Sports (Chumpol Silpa-archa), and Agriculture, and the deputy minister of Transport.

For the Bhumjaithai Party.[6] The party's target was to win at least 30-35 seats[7] and it was even hopeful that it could, as the third party, propose a 'reconciliation Prime Minister'.[8] Eventually, the CP won 19 of the 500 seats in the House of Representatives.

The party joined the Pheu Thai Party-led coalion government under Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra in 2011.
