    Prayut must prove mettle

    News, Editorial, Published on 13/05/2019

    » As post-election political bargaining intensifies, with different camps fiercely competing for a chance to form a coalition, the idea of "political reform" has become blurred, if not forgotten.

    Government exploits Wild Boars

    News, Editorial, Published on 30/07/2018

    » The government's actions towards the rescued Chiang Rai football team makes it appear confused and cold, not to mention exploitative. This may seem ironic to some, since the government's stated aim was to protect the 12 Wild Boars and their families, along with coach Ekapol Chanthawong. In fact, almost everything ministers and senior officials have done in the days since the rescue succeeded on July 10 has been poorly planned and executed.

    Reform hopes looking grim

    News, Editorial, Published on 17/08/2017

    » The Prayut Chan-o-cha cabinet's choice of 120 people to run a new 165-member reform committee does not lend much hope for progressive changes for the country. Instead it raises doubts and uncertainties about the future of its people.

    Nothing new in cabinet

    News, Editorial, Published on 19/12/2016

    » Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has announced his fourth cabinet since declaring himself head of government in September 2014. The reshuffle is, however, lacklustre and unlikely to lift the country's economic outlook or bring about any major changes to the administration. At the very least, it spares Gen Prayut hostile rebukes as none of the five new cabinet members are military top brass.

    Media gag needs rethink

    News, Editorial, Published on 18/07/2016

    » When Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha returns to work after the long holiday, he should put the question of censorship at the top of his "to-do" list. One of his last orders before the long weekend was to appoint the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission as national censor for everything that is broadcast. He used his wide powers under Section 44 to make the appointment, and he should now consider taking it back. Even if one accepts that media censorship is necessary, the broadcasting regulators are the wrong choice.

    We need a steady hand at BoT helm

    News, Editorial, Published on 12/07/2015

    » The announcement naming Veerathai Santiprabhob as the next governor of the Bank of Thailand last week came as no surprise. In addition to his exceptional credentials, the 45-year-old economist with a PhD from Harvard was a clear choice over the other short-listed candidate, Supavud Saicheua, the managing director of Phatra Securities, because he has earned the trust of the current government under the leadership of Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha.
