Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said that she may not go Koh Samet after returning from the overseas trip to Africa.
Arriving in Bangkok, the prime minister said she prefers to monitor the situation in Bangkok. She also added that the situation in Koh Samet is returning to normal, referring to the reports from Energy Minister Pongsak Ruktapongpisal. She noted that right now, all parties involved are busy plotting the rehabilitation plan, under the close coordination between the Energy and Interior ministries.
She said that once the facts involving the crude oil leak are available, the authorities would devise policies to prevent reoccurrence in the long term.
A group of anti-government protesters plan to stage a rally in Bangkok this weekend despite the enforcement of the Internal Security Act.
