[Refers to student political activist Netiwit Chotiphatphaisal who was recently elected president of Chulalongkorn University’s Student Council.
Netiwit espouses progressive views, particularly in ending the practice of prostration before the royal statue on campus.
This election shocked the government as Chulalongkorn University is known as a conservative university and it is thought that the election might indicate student unease with the constricted nature of government controlled by military men with absolute power.
PM Prayuth strongly condemned the election and urged students to maintain traditional practices at the university.]
