PALANG PRACHARATH LEADER Prawit Wongsuwan is not going to call it quits as otherwise speculated anytime soon, said his brother/Deputy Prime Minister-cum-Natural Resources & Environment Minister Patcharawat Wongsuwan today (Nov.16).
Patcharawat said the Palang Pracharath leader who concurrently performs as the No.1 party-listed MP is not going to resign from either position as persistently anticipated on social media at the moment.
Patcharawat who is more or less speculated to replace Prawit as Palang Pracharath leader said Prawit is still in good health and has not shown an indication to retire from the political arena for the time being.
Prawit, a former deputy prime minister, has been earlier viewed as Mr. Fix-It who manipulated the setup of a previous Palang Pracharath-led coalition government.
However, the Palang Pracharath leader has earlier vowed to keep his hands off political activity outside parliament and literally close down the office of his Five Provinces Bordering Forest Preservation Foundation located in the premises of the First Infantry Regiment on Vibhavadi Rangsit road to any politically-connected visitors.
Agriculture & Cooperatives Minister Thammanat Prompao who had earlier led an exodus of 21 MPs from the Palang Pracharath finally returned to Prawit’s camp to retain the post of Palang Pracharath secretary-general.
