Recommended Posts

Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha reiterated today (Sunday) that he has no current intention of reshuffling his cabinet, following the departures of Deputy Agriculture Minister Thammanat Prompao and Deputy Labour Minister Narumon Pinyosinwat, and hopes that his deputy, Prawit Wongsuwan, will not be upset by his decision.

 

He said that his relationship with Prawit, one of what he calls his two “brothers in arms”, the other being Interior Minister Anupong Paochinda, will never be broken, adding that he is ready to acquaint himself with and be more receptive to MPs of the ruling Palang Pracharat and other parties.

 

Thammanat, also secretary-general of the party, is regarded as a protégé of General Prawit. On the day of his removal by the prime minister, Thammanat claimed his relationship with Prawit remains strong.
The prime minister also said that he will pay more visits to upcountry provinces, in an effort to reach out to the local people and to hear their problems and points of view.

Under normal circumstances they should have talked about it already, so any upset reactions would be eliminated. He is still acting and talking like the government is his private one man mission.

Yes, a man of the people. 

If I were advising him, an upcountry "tour" wouldn't be on the ticket. 

He must have some deep delusional notions that he might be loved in these parts.

Maybe he could visit the unemployed , homeless and bahtless as they queue in lines for food and handouts ? Let his eyes feast on their problems and points of view - would suggest at a safe distance or inside a tank or something

A walk down the back of soi 7 in Pattaya where the roofs are falling and people are camped out under blankets.....and as you say at the food handouts. That is reality....

In clearer terms, the manila envelopes have not been distributed completely yet!

If a chief says, that his relationship to his "deputy" is "two brothers in arms” ......... while there is Anupong - a third fellow in the equation .......

Interesting is also, that after seven+ years at the helm of this train without destination, he is "ready" to acquaint himself with and more "receptive" to MPs of the ruling Palang Pracharat .......

The only thing never mentioned and never really considered seems to be the electorate; well the first five years of his tenure there was no electorate to start with anyway .......

His multi-personality and hot temper character is simply not suited to win colleagues, media and grasssroots. Being a soldier for all his adult life and his inability to adapt to being a politician may be reasons that he has to depend on Thammanat to keep a tight rein on the MPs and allow Prawit to control the party. This will come back to haunt him as Prawit and Thammanat have turned on him and he has lost control. Problem with manila envelope is that it can be replicated easily. As for Anupong, he is a invisible and unrelectant man drawn into this fray and he has no backbone.
