Interior Minister Gen Anupong Paochinda has issued an order to dissolve the council of Muang Ubon Ratchathani Municipality on the grounds that it obstructed development by refusing to approve the municipality's budget.

Anupong issued the order on October 11 that was published in the Royal Gazette on Friday.

The order stated that the council was dissolved in accordance with the recommendation of the Ubon Ratchathani governor.

The order said the council obstructed developments in the Muang district of Ubon Ratchathani, which is a large city in the Northeast, by not approving the use of an accumulated left-over budget and not approving the municipality's request to allocate a special development budget.

Moreover, the council always reduced the municipality's requested budget.

The interior minister said that the council stood in the way of tourism developments and projects that would benefit local people.
