Prayut apologises for public bickering of Phalang Pracharat Party

Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha on Monday morning issued an apology statement and expressed his discomfort over the internal conflict within the Phalang Pracharat Party that has dominated headlines in recent days.
 

The former junta leader, and now Prime Minister selected by recently elected MPs and a junta-appointed Senate, pledged to do his best.

 

His statement attributed the issues raised over party administration to the party’s novelty and that it was composed of different political factions. 

 

The PM said it was difficult to make everyone happy. But most important was how to make the government credible to the public, he added.

 

The statement came after the influential so-called Sam Mitr or Three Allies in the party expressed discontent over Cabinet portfolios during the weekend. Its leader, Suriya Juangroongruangkit, had reportedly been allotted the Cabinet post of Industry Minister when there had been a previous agreement that he would head the Energy Ministry.

 

Suriya had reportedly said last week that he would consider withdrawing from Phalang Pracharat Party and taking some 30 MPs with him if he did not get the Energy seat.

 

The veteran politician denied the reports on Saturday but other signs still pointed to serious conflict within the party.

 

Three Allies key figure Anucha Nakasai held a press conference for the first time on Saturday in which he said he could accept losing the Commerce deputy ministerial post but that at least Suriya should get to keep the Energy Ministry.

 

Seats are being allocated between the nearly 20 parties composing the Phalang Pracharat-led coalition.

Why does the phrase 'apology statement' sound to me as if it's something issued by a PR department who are trying to avoid using the word 'apology' on its own? Especially as it could be seen as close to 'sorry'.
Neither words of which could loosely be associated with a leopard changing its spots.
 

'Expressed his discomfort'? All that reminds me of is Prawit's medical emergency months ago. I'm sure he expressed his discomfort in very forthright terms then.

The PPRP is certainly a "novelty" but the cause has nothing to do with the existence of factions... all parties have them. The problem is that the "leader" lacks leadership and management skills in all but the military sense and is too arrogant to face the truth that the coalition is likely to fail because of this.

Shows the true pettiness of the elites in Thailand.   Sorry don't cut it.  You have so much more than anyone else, yet you want more, disgusting.
