THAI ECONOMIC PARTY leader Thammanat Prompao will definitely not return alongside 15 MPs under his command to the ruling Palang Pracharath Party as long as Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha remains in power, confirmed a Thai Economic MP today (Oct. 6).

 

Thammanat, who was deposed from the Prayut cabinet following last year’s censure/no-confidence motion, will not return to the largest coalition partner where he had earlier acted as secretary-general as speculated last month during which Deputy Prime Minister-cum-Palang Pracharath party leader Prawit Wongsuwan had performed as caretaker prime minister, Thai Economic MP Boonsing Warinrak said.

 

Now that Prayut has been allowed by the Constitutional Court to prolong his rule after he had been temporarily suspended by court from performing as head of government, it will be very unlikely for Thammanat, an MP of Payao, and the 15 other Thai Economic MPs to return to the Palang Pracharath Party, according to Boonsing, who concurrently acts as registrar of Thammanat’s party.

What would be better news is that because he's a convicted drug runner and spent 5 years in jail he's not allowed, by law (and common sense) to ever hold any position whatever in a Thai political party for life, prohibited for life from running as a candidate for any political party or as an independent and probibited for life from holding any position funded by or handling Thai taxpayers funds. 

 

Further he should be encouraged to leave Thailand for a nice beach vacation then be prohibited from re-entering Thailand for life.

Ahhhh, a future PM! 🙏

Wasn't the reason given that he could hold political office here was that the conviction and sentence was served in another country (Australia).  I can remember Prayuth saying at the time of the appointment that 'this was a little thing'.

So the self-raising captain and General Rolex are at loggerheads with Prayuth the Usurper?  A squabble among thieves?

This little brick explains how things really work in this country.

A convicted drug dealer (for which he would have looked into the barrels of the execution squad in his home country Thailand) not only sneaked into higher offices of the leadership of this country, no, it gets even better.
His crime was dealt with outside Thai jurisdiction and hence does not count. His flour-to-heroin trip started in Bangkok yet Thailand never filed an extradition request to let him face the tunes of home.

Indian Rakesh Saxena got airlifted back to Bangkok from Canada for embezzling almost USD 90 million. To me, the latter compares to a choir boy opposite a drug smuggler. 

But then, the kettle and pot proverb springs to mind once it relates to Thai politics.

Thailand is truly sunk with this den of thieves.

Would they have it any other way? 👍

What have the soldiers got to do with politics? They are only in parliament because of their guns and tanks.

Or put it another way, what value added, unique and highly intelligent better than average contribution can they make to the development of Thailand and a better quality and equality of life for all Thais? None!

 

This is what puts Singapore way ahead, all the ministers / permanent heads of ministries are the cream of Singapores' capability. They shine again and again. 

 

Plus Singapore a long time ago realized that if you want the best you have to pay for it. The ministers / headsand seniors are paid the same as the captains of industry in the private sector. It works.
