Niwattumrong insists he has full authority as caretaker PM

Acting caretaker Prime Minister Niwattumrong Boonsongpaisan insisted Monday that he has full authority as a caretaker prime minister.

Niwattumrong issued a statement after he held a meeting with a group of senators to discuss solutions for ending the political impasse.

Niwattumrong said he and the caretaker Cabinet are required to stay on by Article 181 and the May 7 Constitutional Court ruling until the next Cabinet takes office.

The prime minister said the charter does not allow the caretaker prime minister to resign either.
