PM assures there won’t be a “nominee” prime minister after the election

post-247607-0-52212900-1459549089_thumb.

BANGKOK: Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha told the Thai-language section of Voice of America Friday that there will not be a “nominee” prime minister after the election in the middle of next year in Thailand.

He said that he intended to wash his hands of politics and to be with his family after his term as the prime minister has ended.

In an interview with the Voice of America during his visit to the United States to participate in the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington DC, the prime minister admitted that his main political concern was the problem that his government has been trying to resolve which, if not successful, will stage a comeback to haunt the country once again “because those people who caused damages to the country have never accepted their guilt”

“How these people can stage a comeback? Because there are people in the country who are ready to be misled and they have been doing this all along,” explained the prime minister without naming who they are.

Prime Minister Prayut said he had been trying to explain to foreign governments and foreign media of what the political problem in Thailand – about what actually happened which led to the military intervention.

However, he complained that some foreign governments and foreign media in particular were only interested in human rights issue and were inclined to listen to the voices of the runaway politicians and activists.

The prime minister insisted that he could not appoint any nominee to succeed him after the expiry of his term “because the MPs will elect the prime minister.”

He said what he and the National Council for Peace and Order has wanted is a fully-appointed Senate with five military top brass and the national police chief as ex-officio senators.

“They (senators) cannot overthrow the government. They will merely advise the prime minister or the cabinet,” said the prime minister.

Chances are after any election that the proxy of Thaksin will win. Therefore there will definitely be a "nominee" PM after the election. Now a different scenario would have been if the junta had shown sincerity in their actions, and cracked down on corruption and dark influence in an open and transparent manner. Didn't happen, so the reds will win again, and I for one will be glad to see them do so. Prayuth really missed an opportunity, big disappointment really, but not entirely unexpected.

So far all your promises haven't quite come true and the believers at the beginning are now disheartened, what the Junta started out and what they are now are two different issues and unfortunately the leader must take blame , if a school report was issued it would read, not to be trusted ,would shoot at first opportunity, out of step with public and international thinking.............................coffee1.gif ..

Someone else "washed his hands" at this time (around easter): Pontius Pilate

An Honest, statement by the PM,

Who i think will be glad to walk away from the cesspit,

being a blunt abrupt person is his military training and dealings,

taking the uniform off and having to suddenly be a statesmen dealing with all

manner of the problems that were already taking place, plus the intervention

of military rule to quell the violence, and then ( try ) and govern

Time will tell if all his efforts have been for zilch.

He has tried to the best of ( his ) capabilities, limited they may be,

debatable if the next one does any better,

According to Mark Abhisit and Thaksin Shinawatra, he is not fit to lead or zilch as you put. This is a sort of reconciliation, but not what the good general had in mind. He has taken Thailand back 10 steps.

Ohh boo hoo.

He had been planning to PM since 2011. He was happy to take the role for the elite her serves, so he should learn to suck it up.

To be fair, there probably won't be any need for a nominee Prime Minister as under the system he has in mind the next government will find itself with less power than a parish council anyway.

From the grapevine, the next election will result in a coalition government and someone from a prominent party in the infamous army brokered government will be the PM.

"PM assures there wont be a nominee prime minister after the election"

No need because the senate and a few choosen officers will be in command of the country. The next "elected" government and prime minster will just be puppets, with no power to make any decisions, laws, investments etc. The power will remain with the military, they will remain as judge, jury and executioner.

He can lie but he cannot hide what is happening in Thailand, the army are becoming more and more repressive, now with almost unlimited powers, all very Stalinistic.
