PM instructs Cabinet to adhere to roadmap


BANGKOK, 9 June 2015 – Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has encouraged all units at the Cabinet meeting to continue to follow the existing roadmap in order to propel the country forward.

At the Cabinet’s joint meeting with the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) today, Prime Minister Prayut emphasized to all participating officials the importance of adhering to the national reform roadmap put in place earlier. He affirmed that, after the drafting of the new constitution is completed, there will be a general election as planned. The premier insisted he has no intention to extend his time in office and will keep the people’s interest at heart in all procedures.

On this occasion, there were also discussions on the progress being made by each ministry as well as the NCPO. All of the attendants were told to wrap up their works within April 2016 in a bid to pass on their responsibilities to the incoming government.

Moreover, Prime Minister Prayut touched on the issue of land allocation to the impoverished as well as the promotion of alternative careers among agriculturists, who are often affected by drought and price declines.
