The State Audit Commission voted 7-0 for Prajak’s nomination, which will now be forwarded for approval to the National Legislative Assembly (NLA), said General Chanathap Intamara, president of the Office of the Auditor General (OAG).
The term of the last auditor general, Pisit Leelavachiropas, ended in September. Recruitment for his replacement began on October 18, with 18 people applying to contest the position, said Chanathap.
The Auditor General would serve a six-year term under a new organic law.
Prajak graduated with second-class honours from the faculty of economics, Thai Chamber University and has worked at the OAG since.
Prajak was among the witnesses to testify against fugitive former PM Yingluck Shinawatra in the controversial rice-pledging scheme case in which the ex-PM was handed a five-year imprisonment term
