Thai MP Wants Southern MP In Cabinet
BANGKOK, Sept 19 (Bernama) — The new Thai Cabinet under Prime Minister Somchai Wongsawat is likely to end up without any representatives from the restive southern provinces like in the previous administration, a prominent law maker from Narathiwat said Friday.
Dr Wan Mahdee Wan Daud said that despite the ongoing intense lobbying among politicians and the six parties in the coalition government to secure posts in Somchai’s Cabinet, the 12 members of Parliament (MP) from Narathiwat, Pattani and Yala were lacking the necessary clout to bargain.
“We have the talents and capability but our voices are not strong enough to bargain for seats. The lobbying is very strong among all the six parties, so only those with seniority and power have real chance to be considered,” he said in an interview here. (more)
