His Majesty the King on Tuesday appointed a senior technocrat and two former military commanders as new members of the Privy Council.

With the royal command, Ampon Kitti-ampon, General Chalermchai Sittisart and Air Chief Marshal Johm Rungswang will serve as advisers to the King.

The command was countersigned by Privy Council President Prem Tinsulanonda and published in the Royal Gazette on Tuesday, with immediate effect.

At the end of last month, Gen Chalermchai retired as commander-in-chief of the Royal Thai Army, and ACM Johm as commander-in-chief of the Royal Thai Air Force. 

They both were ex-officio members of the National Council for Peace and Order.

Ampon served as secretary-general of the National Economic and Social Development Board between 2004 and 2010, and as secretary-general of the Cabinet from 2010 to 2016. 

He was appointed a member of the National Legislative Assembly two months after the military coup in May 2014.
