AP20148245779584.jpg

Thailand Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha answers questions during an open session at the parliament house in Bangkok, Thailand, Wednesday, May 27, 2020. The parliament session Wednesday is the first since Thailand enforced coronavirus restrictions, and it was considered a special session to discuss the government’s plan to fund stimulus packages for businesses and industries impacted by the pandemic.

 

Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has distanced himself from the latest internal strife within the ruling Palang Pracharat party, as 18 members of the executive committee resign en masse to pave the way for the election of the new executive committee, party leader and secretary-general.
