Uttama, Sontirat deny they are quitting to jump into politics




Industry Minister Uttama Savanayana and Commerce Minister Sontirat Sontijirawong,  who have been linked to a new political party being formed to support Prime Minister Gen Prayuth Chan-o-cha’s return to power, today dismissed a press report that they were resigning from their cabinet posts to go into politics.


“I have never thought about resigning, neither at this moment or in the near future. I will continue to be  industry minister,” Mr Uttama said this morning.


He was responding to a press report that he and Mr Sontirat were about to resign from the Cabinet so that they would devote themselves fully to working for the newly-formed Palang Pracharat Party.  The report claimed that Mr Uttama would be the leader of the new party while Mr Sontirat would be its secretary-general.
