  • Prayut returns as prime minister

    General Prayut Chan-o-cha was elected as prime minister in a Parliamentary vote late on Wednesday night after more than 12.5 hours of intense debate. Prayut returned as PM for a second term after a five-year term since the 2014 coup, beating his opponent Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit with 500 to 244 votes with three abstentions.

    His victory came due to support from nearly 20 political parties and the 250-member Senate. Thanathorn did not vote because he has been suspended from his MP duties, and neither did former Democrat party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva, who gave up his party-list MP seat on Wednesday morning. The general is Thailand's 29th prime minister.: http://www.nationmultimedia.com/deta...itics/30370626 - http://www.nationmultimedia.com/deta...itics/30370638

                  I will agree with you if and when he doesn't get the baht back to 33/34 against the USD.

                  Hearing he's got 3 months to achieve that or his coalition is gone.

                        His Majesty the King has appointed new cabinet ministers as nominated by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha.

                        The new cabinet line-up published in the Royal Gazette on Wednesday evening is a mix of members of the military government he headed after leading a 2014 coup and key politicians who helped him assemble a majority in the House of Representatives after March elections.

                        Gen Prayut will be both prime minister and defence minister in the 36-member Cabinet, while Gen Chaicharn Changmongkol is deputy defence minister.

                        Gen Prawit Wongsuwon, Somkid Jatusripitak and Wissanu Krea-ngam are named as deputy prime ministers.

                        Democrat Party leader Jurin Laksanavisit is deputy prime minister and commerce minister. Bhumjaithai Party leader Anutin Charnveerakul is deputy prime minister and public health minister. Tewan Liptapallop is prime minister's office minister.

                        Palang Pracharath (PPRP) leader Uttama Savanayana is finance minister while Santi Prompat is his deputy. Don Pramudwinai retains the post of foreign minister. Pipat Ratchakitprakan is tourism and sports minister. Juti Krairiksh is social development and human security minister.

                        Suvit Maesincee is minister of higher education, science, research and innovation. Chalermchai Sri-on is agriculture minister while Thammanat Prompao, Mananya Thaiset and Praphat Phothasuthon are his deputies.

                        Saksayam Chidchob is transport minister and his deputies are Atirat Rattanaset and Thaworn Senneam.

                        Buddhipongse Punnakanta is digital economy and society minister. Varawut Silpa-archa is natural resources and environment minister.

                        Sontirat Sontijirawong is energy minister. Veerasak Wangsupakitkosol is deputy commerce minister.

                        Gen Anupong Paojinda retains the post of interior minister and his deputies are Nipon Boonyamanee and Songsak Thongsri.

                        Two members of key PPRP faction Sam Mitr (Three Allies) received cabinet posts: Somsak Thepsuthin is justice minister, while Suriya Juangroongruangkit is industry minister. MR Chatumongol Sonakul is labour minister and Ittipol Khunploem is culture minister.: https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand...ters-appointed
