One nation, two prime ministers - translated and summarized from Komchadluek, March 6, 2008
Former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra’s return is clearly being perceived by many as having effectively created a country run by two prime ministers. High-ranking government officials, who might have an agenda contrary to that of the ousted prime minister, have already been transferred. The current Prime Minister - Samak Sundaravej - must realize that this has caused great public concern, with many demanding an explanation of the situation from the country’s elected prime minister.
It should be remembered that the person who called on Samak Sundaravej to be the head of the People Power Party (PPP) was none other than Thaksin Shinawatra himself.
In principle, the Kingdom should have only one prime minister - and that premier’s name should be Samak Sundaravej. Samak should have full power to administer the country without having to concern himself about outside influences.
As the elected leader of this country, Samak must be answerable on all issues concerning the country and its administration. People will continue to have a perception of ‘one country - two prime ministers’ as long as they continue to doubt that truth is being spoken by either of these two people.
