PM leads cabinet to give New Year wishes to Prem

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha on Thursday (Dec 28) led his cabinet, top military and police personnel and high-level government officials to call on Gen Prem Tinsulanonda, president of the Privy Council and statesman, at his Sisao Thewes Residence to give him New Year blessings.

Gen Prayut, in his speech on behalf of the cabinet, was full praise for Gen Prem, saying that the statesman is a model in the country’s administration.

All government officials as well as military and police personnel will follow Gen Prem’s advice for them to do everything for their motherland, he said.

The prime minister pledged to do his best to push the country forward, to take measures to raise the people’s income and to narrow the gap of people in society.

In return, Gen Prem said although support for the government under Gen Prayut is waning, he believed the support will return if it could show determination to bring happiness back to the people.

He wished the cabinet and all others to meet every success in steering the country toward prosperity.
