PM promises cabinet formation for September

New appointed Prime Minister Prayuth ChanOcha on Monday said he will form a cabinet as soon as possible, probably around the end of September.

He was speaking in his first speech after receiving a royal command to become Thailand's 29th Prime Minister.

"There will be close cooperation between the government and National Council for Peace and Order," he said.

He also urged people not to worry about (appointment of) certain individuals, saying he would press on with creating strong systems and security issues.

"I will work on economic and social issues, judiciary systems and all other issues in to prepare the country for national reform and push the country to prosperity," he said.
