InfoQuest (March 25) -- When talking about the election on May 24, General Chatchai Sarikaya, deputy prime minister of Thailand, said that not too many people have exercised the right to vote yet. However, if the election goes smoothly, Thailand will be able to win recognition in the international community. The only problem is that voters may lose or damage the ballots.
"In general, we should appreciate those who exercised their right to vote and cast their votes. The government will continue to accept their opinions," said General Chatchai Sarikaya.
Prime Minster General Prayut Chan-ocha said he will continue to work until the new government is elected, and make every effort to tackle problems and difficulties plaguing the people.
Relevant authorities will discuss the drought which has occurred this week and reiterate what we should do for preparation.Water use from every dam and reservoir will be managed and efforts will be made to address the existing problems. Field visits will be made if necessary.
"But I have to admit, only 20 percent of the country is within irrigation areas and 70 percent is beyond irrigation. It is due to high terrain which prevents water inflow.However, the prime minister has ordered to meet the needs of households and make every effort to address the drought. "
After meeting with Mr. Lee Wook-heon, ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Thailand, who just took office, General Chatchai noted that South Korea thinks highly of Thai general election and hopes next government will continue to implementthe current policies and important projects, especially promoting cooperation and relations between the two countries.
