Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha said on Wednesday that he would not ask Somchai Sujjapongse, the former permanent secretary for finance, to stay on and was not worried about a potential rift between the Cabinet and top officials.

Somchai tendered his resignation after the Cabinet on Tuesday transferred him to a less active post as secretary general of the National Economic and Social Development Board, state think-tank agency.

Prayut said he had not yet seen the resignation letter, and reiterated that he would not ask Somchai to reconsider his resignation.

He was confident that the situation would not lead to a rift between his Cabinet and state officials.

“ If there is any [rift], then it’s because of the media,” an annoyed Prayut told a reporter.
