Heres something to think about, Thammanat is PM, has to go to another country, sorry we do not allow convicted criminals entry, how would Thailand then look?

It says in the article linked in the OP:

 

"They add that appointing influential political “fixer” Thammanat as secretary-general relieves pressure on Palang Pracharath, as he can give the government security and tackle obstacles in its path."

 

But hey maybe the "fixer" has never thought about that.

 

BTW if he were to become the Kingdom's PM, then any visit to another country would be at the invitation for an official visit -- not on  a tourist visa.

He's a bit unqualified for the job. After all, he only smuggled drug, nothing serious such as arms, diamonds, etc... Small player! 😁

Understanding where you are going with this argument as to reach the top you really need to have shooting people on your CV. Responsibility for the shooting a nurse in a Wat attending injured people is a big step in achieving that aspiration

From the attached report

" They added that appointing political fixer Thammanat as secretary general " .. 

 

Unfortunate choice of descriptor there for a convicted heroin trafficker ..

Cooperatives Minister Thammanat Prompow elected unopposed as secretary-general.

the drug dealer elected unopposed because nobody else came forward to challenge him.... Xi in China, Vlad in Russia, Bielorussia, Turkey, NK, etc. dictators/autocrats/tyrants are all  same same

Poor chap came to the game a generation too late!

 

Now if he had been fortunate enough to be stationed on the border with Cambodia when the Khmer Rouge were fighting to stay in business, he could have really cleaned up!

Has happened before. Look up Narong Wongwan. He was essentially PM for a “minute” after the ‘92 election. The US said no visa for him due to suspected drug trafficking involvement. The State Department indicated that it would be a problem for relations. He was soon dropped.

 

Of course, he was replaced by Suchinda and we know how that ended.

(How many times have I said this???) If Thai people are stupid enough to elect these dics after all they put us through...I'm officially giving up!

Are you under the illusion that this "government" was voted in?

Let us hope someone from the newly formed Future Forward Party, on the level of Thanathorn comes forward. The ruling party is despised like never before. They have richly earned that hatred and disapproval. They are thugs, drug lords, and thiefs. And add to that the dismal failure of the tax program, the inability to contain Covid, and the willful sabotage of the tourism sector, and you have all the ingredients for losing a "fair election". How far out they are willing to extend themselves to secure a stolen election, remains to be seen, and so do the repercussions for such a move. 

 

The people have to make a statement, the people have to remove the 250 crony senators, and the people have to find a way to turn this nation around, and drag it back from the stone age of dinosaur leadership. 

 

Prayuth, Pratin, Anutin, Phiphat, and the mafia chief Prompow must go. These guys are toxic, corrosive, corrupt, ineffective, incompetent, untrustworthy, very bad for the nation, and virtually assure a rotten future for the nation, a drop to 75th place in GDP, and increasing irrelevance. They have already turned Thailand from the tiger of SE Asia, to a sorry, rabid, whiny, anemic alley cat.
