Chalerm appoints Wadah MPs as advisers
Deputy Prime Minister Chalerm Yoobamrung Tuesday appointed nine advisers, aiming to solicit "fresh ideas" on how to quell the insurgency in the far South.
The advisers include Wan Muhamad Noor Matha, Areepen Utarasint and Najmuddin Uma, who are prominent Muslims from Pheu Thai Party's Wadah faction.
"These advisers are local Muslims and I have close ties with them, therefore I want to sound out their ideas," Chalerm said.
He said he would hold an informal meeting with the advisers next week. Later he might invite them to meet and talk with his panel members in charge of the strife-torn region.
