BANGKOK – According to Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha all 172 measures which have been enacted since the start of his administration were issued in the best interests of the country and its people.
The prime minister said Thailand has long had problems in the areas of legislation, public administration and the legal system. The administration has sought to solve problems in these areas, during the limited time it has.
Addressing long-term issues, he said the government has laid down a strong framework for the future and has made progress in the first phase of resolving these issues.
Since 2014 which is when Gen Prayut took office, a total of 172 laws have been promulgated. He said the government does not cater to political interests, but rather upholds the interests of the nation as a whole as well as the common good.
Lastly, he said his administration has not and will never attempt to intervene in the judicial process, unlike governments in the past.
