Prawit to join Phalang Pracharat after policy debate: source
Deputy Prime Minister Gen Prawit Wongsuwan will apply for membership with the coalition leader Phalang Pracharat Party after the three-day government policy debate in Parliament, a source close to him said.
The source said Prawit would definitely join the party. The party has yet to consult with Prawit about an executive post for him, the source added.
The government is scheduled to deliver its policy statement to Parliament on Thursday, with debate expected to continue until Saturday.
The source added that the party is now consulting with its legal team about the proper timing for Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha to take the party helm.
