Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said Tuesday that his weekly televised speech would be shortened and that he will have his ministers pitch in.



“I’m tired of speaking for hours. So from now on, I will reduce the duration of my ‘Returning Happiness to People’ speech ever Friday and will have my ministers who oversee each topic to speak in the programme,” he said after chairing a Cabinet meeting.
For instance, Deputy Prime Minister Pridiyathorn Devakula will provide details about the economy, while this week Prayut said he would talk about security, human trafficking, illegal fishing and the fishery sector.
The programme will now last about 20-30 minutes, he said.
