Khampee quits new job out of 'frustration'
A former deputy House secretary-general handed in his resignation on Tuesday reportedly because he is frustrated with his new job.
Khampee Disthakorn, who was moved from the post of deputy House secretary-general to that of an adviser to the legislative system, said his resignation would be in effect from March 1. Asked about the reason for his resignation, all he said was he is uneasy with his job.
Deputy House Speaker Charoen Chankomol said Khampee had not been demoted but was actually promoted to a C-11 post, which is higher than the post of a deputy House secretary-general.
Charoen said Khampee's transfer had nothing to do with him organising a controversial foreign trip for media representatives to accompany House Speaker Somsak Kiartsuranon last year.
Separately, Pheu Thai leader Charupong Ruangsuwan said the party had not decided on the replacement for coalition whip Udomdej Rattanasatien, who quit in November. The issue will be discussed tomorrow, he said.
