Rumours surrounding potential reshuffle of the ruling Palang Pracharath Party (PPRP) executive board are getting some broader airing ahead of today's meeting of party leadership.

  • Digital Economy and Society Minister Chaiwut confirmed Wednesday that the executive committee will discuss possible restructuring today, "because the ruling party must work hand-in-glove with the government and it may be difficult for the party to work if it is not in sync with Prime Minister Prayuth."
  • Chaiwut admitted that the party has problems with its Secretary General Thamanat. Prime Minister Prayuth sacked Thamanat as Deputy Agriculture Minister last month after it emerged that PPRP Secretary General was allegedly preparing a plot to unseat the Premier.
  • The Bangkok Post suggested that more than half of the PPRP's executive committee will resign to set the scene for an overhaul of the party leadership, which could see Thamanat replaced as Secretary General of the ruling party.
