BANGKOK, 19 June 2019 (NNT) – The Prime Minister, Gen. Prayut Chan-o-cha, said he will try to finalize the allocation of cabinet portfolios by the end of this month. He has urged all sides not to make an issue out of this.

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.
