Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha has appointed as “advisers to the government” eight former ministers who lost their positions in the last Cabinet reshuffle.
They were “like family”, Prayut said yesterday, adding that the ex-ministers had high credentials. More importantly, they had worked in the government so they understood the problems and the administration’s public-relations plans, he explained.
The PM said everyone was his family but stressed that this was about work, and not any special interest.
No one gets any benefit to be one of his ministers, he stressed.
