Prawit dismisses rumour of Phalang Pracharat leadership bid


Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan dismissed rumours of a shake-up in Phalang Pracharat on Wednesday (April 29), saying Uttama Savanayana would remain as leader of the government coalition’s main party.

Speculation about a rift and leadership change in Phalang Pracharat have been a hot topic for the past week, with suspicions growing that a Cabinet reshuffle was also on the cards.
However, Gen Prawit poured cold water on the rumours on Wednesday (April 29), saying they were not plausible.
“There is nothing,” he said, after being asked whether the party was discussing changes. When reporters asked if the problems in the party had been solved, he responded that it was all over.
He also denied that someone had wanted him to be the new party leader, adding there would be no reshuffle for Phalang Pracharat.
