PM Prayut: Reform is the heart of the country’s administration


BANGKOK, 5 June 2015 – The Prime Minister has stated that the reform process is the heart of the administration of Thailand.

Prime Minister Gen. Prayut Chan-o-cha on Thursday delivered a summary on the government’s performances during its first year in office as he attended the meeting with the National Legislative Assembly and the National Reform Council.

Gen. Prayut said that the current government has been trying hard to solve all problems Thailand has faced before he came to office, through the effect of the interim Constitution and its Article 44.

He stated that the special power under Article 44, which replaced Martial Law in April, was not put to use to solve all problems but to tackle certain issues in a more timely and, yet, impartial manner.

The PM said that while the government could not do everything in one year, it has been planning every policy to help take the country through the reform process, which is the key to the administration of Thailand.

He added that all policies and plans will be handed over to the next government although all the successes will require cooperation from all sides.
