Lt-General Preecha Chan-ocha, a member of the National Legislative Assembly (NLA), said yesterday he was ready to declare his assets to the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) in a bid for honesty and transparency.

Preecha, who is a brother of junta chief General Prayuth, said fellow Army officers who are part of the assembly had also agreed to comply with the NACC and declare their assets. 
“As Thai military officers, we have to follow a code of ethics and be honest. So, in our 35 years of military service, every asset can be verified,” Lt-General Preecha said. 
When asked about who would be chosen as the next premier, he said the NLA had not discussed the issue yet, but a decision was likely in three or four days. 
Meanwhile, NLA vice president-elect Surachai Liengboonlertchai said he agreed that NLA members should declare their assets. 
NACC officials will explain the asset-declaration procedure to NLA members next week.
