Yingluck: Reds can be ministers

Posted by arnon_k On July - 7 - 2011

The selection of cabinet members will be based on their knowledge and competence and is not closed to leaders of the red-shirt movement if they are qualified, prime minister-in-waiting Yingluck Shinawatra said on Thursday.

Ms Yingluck was responding to comments by Sanoh Thienthong, a Pheu Thai Party list MP-elect, that the appointment of co-leaders of the United front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) to the cabinet could aggravate social divisions.

“Pheu Thai will consider people who have ability to do the job and implemen the party’s plans and policies,” she said.

She said her government plans to revoke the state levy on some kinds of fuel, such as petrol 91, 95 and diesel.

When this is done would depend on the economic situation. It would be only a temporary measure. If the economy is good, the government might consider reintroducing the same levy system.

The Pheu Thai will not change the system currently used to manage the foreign exchange rate, she said, despite the comment by a member of economic team of Pheu Thai, Suchart Thada-thamrongvech..

“Mr Suchart’s remark was just a preliminary analysis, not a policy of Pheu Thai. This is a sensitive matter and we have to be careful. The government will continue using the existing foreign exchange mechanism for the time being,” she said.

Earlier, Mr Suchart, who is likely to be made next finance minister, said in an interview that Thailand should chanage to a managed, fixed exchange rate like that used in China and Singapore.
