[Refers to the controversial petroleum concession. Phra Buddha Isara supports the military government’s stance on allowing foreigners to bid on gas concessions. Former PM Abhisit joined former senator Rossana Tositrakul to agitate against the concession.
Opposing foreign control of state resources has been a major issue for anti-Thaksin groups and protests. After the coup, these groups assumed the military would halt foreign bidding on Thai gas concessions. However PM Prayuth insisted they go ahead. Later, under pressure, PM Prayuth backed down and decided to delay the bidding.]
