Gen. Prayut said he has received the list of all candidates and their qualifications are now under review. If no issues arise, the list will be submitted for royal endorsement this month.

He said all sides should not create confusion over the cabinet seat allocation because not everyone can become a minister. He said there would be a reshuffle if the new ministers prove unsuitable for the roles. He said the idea of him concurrently serving as the Defense Minister is still under consideration.

As for some criticism that the Prime Minister may lack experience in politics, he said such comments were inaccurate since he has been administering the country and working in the political arena for five years.

He has called on politicians to stop arguing and refrain from using the phrase ’power succession’ since a general election was held in accordance with the democratic system. He said politicians should respect the law and stop stirring conflict.

Gen. Prayut added that he has not made a decision about leading the Palang Pracharath Party and will consult with his legal team first.

3 Reasons to Be Optimistic About the Baht Right Now

Probably one of the most important factors for the rise of the Baht is the continued weakness of the US dollar, which most experts agree is going to continue declining throughout the rest of the year.

The Thai Baht, our beleaguered currency, has had something of a difficult few years. Successful debt and inflation crises have eroded the value of the Baht numerous times, not least the events of 2015-16, which saw the Baht plunge to some of the lowest levels against the Dollar in history.
