New Cabinet will be ready by middle of the month: PM


Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha yesterday said that his Cabinet would be finalised by the middle of this month and ready for Royal approval.

When asked if all the Cabinet members would be ready to be sworn in before His Majesty the King by mid-July. Prayut nodded, adding, “When a subsequent Royal command is published, that is when it [swearing in] will happen."
He told the public and the media to consider the election as over, explaining that it had taken more than three months since the March 24 election for the new government to take office due to the time-consuming formalities of the process.
An unconfirmed list of new Cabinet members has been circulating among media outlets since Wednesday. The list includes many high-profile members of the present caretaker Cabinet, with some members taking on new portfolios, including Somkid and Prawit.
