A war of words has broken out between Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak and Democrat party deputy leader Korn Chatikavanich over Democrat leader Abhisit Vejjajiva’s recent plea to voters to reject General Prayut Chan-o-cha’s as post-election prime minister.

 

While addressing senior executives of state enterprises at a business forum on Wednesday, Dr. Somkid said, without mentioning the Democrat party by name, that he didn’t understand why a party leader had to repeat the same announcement three times.

 

“Having announced the boycott twice, now another boycott – but not boycott of the election, but a claim that he (Prayut) shouldn’t be the prime minister,” said the deputy prime minister, adding “this Constitution was written in a way that provides for a coalition government – which is understood.  (I) don’t know who wrote the Constitution, but there will definitely be a coalition government between a core party and a few other parties.”
