Prawit denies pushing PM Prayut to be outside premier


DEPUTY Prime Minister and Defense Minister Prawit Wongsuwan today (Jan. 12) explained that his saying Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha would be a suitable outside premier after the next election was only in answering reporters’ question, Thai News Agency reported. Whether or not Gen. Prayut becomes the outside prime minister is a question that has to be put the public, he added. On whether this could be a 2-edged sword because Prime Minister Prayut has announced that he is now a politician, Gen. Prawit said this is just media speculation because everything has to follow the Constitution, while also urging the media not to speculate. According to a Reuters report, although Gen. Prayut cannot technically stand for election because he would have to resign by July, a new constitution does offer him a route.
