The government should get someone else to handle security affairs in the restive South instead of Deputy Prime Minister Chalerm Yubamrung, opposition leader Abhisit Vejjajiva said on Monday.
Mr Abhisit said it is time that the government reviewed its performance in tackling issues in the deep South and re-evaluate the role of a deputy premier who supervises security but is not willing to travel to the region.
