Former police chief urges senators to not block Pita for PM


FORMER POLICE chief Pol. Gen. Sereepisuth Temeeyaves, who is head of the one-MP Thai Liberal Party which is among the eight partners of the Move Forward-led coalition government, urged senators to not use the amendment of lese majeste law, better known as Criminal Code Section 112, as a pretext for not voting for Pita Limjaroenrat as prime minister, TV Channel 7 said today (June 4).

Sereepisuth pointed out in a video clip posted on Facebook that the MoU signed by the eight partners of this coalition government does not mention amendment of Section 112.

He added that he himself had drunk consecrated water as an oath of allegiance and would not allow Move Forward to push through this amendment even though his party is a small one.

As this is the same standpoint of other coalition partners, including Pheu Thai, Prachachart and other smaller parties, senators should feel comfortable and freely decide on voting for the prime minister, he said.
