Call for THAI board chairman to resign

- +

The labour union of Thai Airways International on Tuesday called for the resignation of the airline’s chairman of the board, Ampon Kitiampon, saying he has been appointed to numerous positions by the government which would prevent him giving his full attention to the job. 

Mr Ampon, who is also cabinet secretary-general, has been selected as the new chairman of the Bank of Thailand (Bot), pending cabinet approval.

THAI labour union president Jamsri Sukchotirat described the appointment as “inappropriate” as it may adversely affect the administration of THAI. Mr Ampon had already held several official positions assigned by the government.
