Thailand’s cabinet reshuffle involves 16 posts

BANGKOK, Jan. 17 (Xinhua) — Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has submitted a new cabinet line-up to His Majesty the King for royal endorsement, government spokesperson Thitima Chaisaeng said Tuesday.

The reshuffle, which took place nearly six months after Yingluck came to power, involved 16 portfolios, a source in the ruling Pheu Thai party was quoted as saying by local media.

Some ministers would be replaced while others would be moved to new portfolios.

Deputy Prime Minister and Commerce Minister Kittirat Na-Ranong admitted that about 90 percent of the recent reports about new cabinet line-up were correct.

Among those changes reported by press, Kittirat would replace Thirachai Phuvanatnaranubala as finance minister while retaining the post of deputy prime minister. ACM Sukampol Suwannathat, the present transport minister, would become defence minister, replacing Gen Yuthasak Sasiprapha.
