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.
