Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha may have taken one step closer to the brink with the Cabinet he has set up. But it’s not quite about the “faces”, which are a mixture of quality and questionable figures. How he formed it matters more, when his pledge to “reform” Thai politics is concerned.

 

The way he shaped up his Cabinet is unhealthily traditional. By that, controversial characters made their ways to high government posts because either Prayut had to return the favor or they are party executives who conventionally couldn’t miss out and who couldn’t afford to let less senior party members do a job that the latter group is probably more qualified for.

 

That’s why Thailand has had Anupong Paochinda as interior minister and Prawit Wongsuwan as deputy prime minister. The two names have been more or less criticized and a lot of people must be asking why they have to be there. What is obvious is they are more essential to Prayut than they are to the public.
