PM defends the appointment of senators

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has asked critics to stop criticizing the alleged opaque manner in which the new senators were chosen, claiming that they had been screened and royally endorsed.

 

He hit back at critics, who claim that many of the senators are old faces, brothers of people in the government or friends of Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan and Interior Minister Anupong Paochida, saying that the critics and media people are also “old faces”.

 

In a somewhat confusing statement, an apparently irritated prime minister said “Why don’t you separate? The politicians are also old faces. Why can’t old faces work when they come in to carry on with the work? I have to choose people who used to work, but not all the 250 senators.”
