Ticha Na Nakorn, a well-known volunteer social worker, on Friday presented to Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha over 80,000 signatures gathered from an online campaign, adding pressure for deputy PM General Prawit Wongsuwan to resign.

The online campaign, initiated by Ticha, called on Prawit to keep his word of January 31, in which he offered to step down if the people no longer wanted him.

Prawit made the comments after weeks of being hit hard over a scandal involving luxury watches.

Between the campaign’s January 31 launch and February 15, a total of 80,018 people had supported the petition calling for the scandal-plagued minister to resign from the Cabinet. The petition is on the change.org website.
