The government believes it will be able to reinstate Thawil Pliensri as secretary-general of the National Security Council (NSC) within 45 days as ordered by the Supreme Administrative Court, caretaker Deputy Prime Minister Pongthep Thepkanchana said before Tuesday's cabinet meeting at the Police Academy at Sam Phran.
Mr Pongthep said he would first consult the Civil Service Commission (CSC) about a suitable position for Lt Gen Paradorn Pattanatabut, who is currently in the job, before forwarding the matter to the cabinet for consideration.
The cabinet decision would then be forwarded to the Election Commission (EC) for consideration.
