According to government spokesman Thanakorn Wangboonkongchana, Prayut responded positively to the PPRP’s decision to name him as a potential prime ministerial candidate in the next poll.

The spokesman said that Prayut has asked Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam, who is a legal expert, to make sure that his nomination does not go against the constitution and/or other organic laws in a reference to the recent confusion surrounding the end of his tenure as PM.

On September 30, Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwon, in his capacity as leader of the PPRP, told party members that the Party would definitely name Prayut as a PM candidate in the next election, which is expected to take place sometime next year.
